  • Leno Fabric Technology



    leno weaves, They are fabrics that are obtained by the cross movement of the warp threads, although they are sparsely woven, they have a very strong structure.Rotary power assemblies are used to create leno weaves.






    Woven fabrics are textile surfaces created by positioning two yarn systems called weft and warp perpendicular to each other and intersecting them according to the connection system called knitting. LWoven surfaces called eno, rotary power, openwork, cross or gaze if;

    They are sparsely woven but robust textile structures formed by the up and down movement of the warp threads, as well as by moving them diagonally.





    The weaving of these fabrics in the weaving machine is provided by rotary power devices. In Leno woven fabrics, the warp threads that are next to each other are not parallel to each other when connecting with the weft, but they are also connected to each other by making diagonal crossings. It is these crossings of warp threads that give the fabric its sparse but durable structure. In order to obtain leno fabrics, there are two warp groups, one of which is used to make a straight movement and the other to make a diagonal (with loop) movement. Due to the cross movement of the warp threads, such fabrics are called “Leno Weave”.





    For example;

    • In the Leno braid indicated by A (Leno braid with 5/5 jumps), leno connection can be made by using leno forces, or in the braid with 5/5 jumps, normal flat connection can be made by using steel forces.
    • In the Leno weave shown with B, leno connections can be made by using 3/3 jumps in the braid, or normal straight connection can be made by using steel forces in the braid with 3/3 jumps.

    Leno weaves are formed from two sets of warp yarns crossing each other and usually a set of weft yarns. In this way, loosely knitted, porous and porous structures can be formed. Various texture effects can be achieved by using various knitting effects, fancy yarns in the weft. It has an increasingly widespread use in women's and men's tops, home textiles, food packaging and greenhouse cultivation, in the construction sector, filter fabric, geotextile applications, medical textiles and auto upholstery.
