Tech/Engineering - Textiles / Clothing / Fashion / basket weaving
German term or phrase: Eintragsfaden
This term, (also sometimes referred to as an Eintragselement), occur in a Swiss German book on basketry. My question is if there is a technical
term, or if this just means an 'added' fiber//thread or weaving element. I saw several translations of Eintrag as weft (synonym for Schussfaden)
in a textile context.
Context:
Start und Aufbau einer Borte oder Matte aus Pfeilspitzen (the author's term for folded elements) plus fortlaufendem *Eintragsfaden*…

Das *Eintragselement* wird quer ins offene Fach gelegt. Das Fach schließen und ein neues öffnen, dadurch wird der *Eintragsfaden* bereits recht gut festgehalten. Ziehen Sie das Eintragselement bis auf einen kleinen Rest (der stehen bleibt) nach links und falten Sie den Streifen vornüber…. Nun falten Sie den Eintragsfaden noch einmal vornüber.

Any help appreciated!
Thank you,
Mary

Explanation:
In textile weaving, the “Eintragsfaden” (or Einschlagsfaden, Schussfaden) is the weft thread; in basketry, this element is referred to as the “weaver”
Warp thread: This is the thread that is strung over the loom vertically, and holds the tension while you weave.
Weft thread: This is the thread that you weave between the warp threads, creating your patterns and structure in the weave.

Start by understanding some basic terms:
Weaver - these are the basket strands that weave through the spokes; they are lighter, thinner and more flexible than the spokes, to enable them to be woven in and out;
• Spoke - these are the strands that stand upright and form the side supports of the basket; they are much stiffer than the weavers and are strong.

Weavers: Cane, or other basketry materials, with which the sides and sometimes the base are woven.

The horizontal members of the basket are called weavers.
