dessins des tissu de peau de requin et de caviar


Explanation:
Birdseye: A fabric woven with a pattern of small diamonds, each having a dot in the center.
http://www.companya.com/apparel_glossary.htm

Pattern[s] from A Handweaver’s Pattern Book by Marguerite Porter Davison
German bird’s eye 1; German’s bird’s eye 2; Modified herringbone twill; Finnish bird’s eye 1; Finnish bird’s eye 2; Tradional bird’s eye 1; Rose path project 1; Rose path project 2.
Bird's eye - armure - diaper weave: depending on the time, country of origin and type of yarn used any of these names is appropriate. Diaper is a traditional name applied to diamond or diagonal patterned weaves. Bird's eye is used to describe fabric designs shaped like a bird's eye (a diamond with a spot in the middle of it). A Handweaver's Pattern Book where I obtained these patterns called then bird's eye or rose path project weaves. A Complete Dictionary of Dry Goods By George S. Cole (J. B. Herring Publishing Co. 1894) has this to say about this type of weaving.
