Spanish term or phrase: urdimbre de ligamento / base
Description of a cloak (13th century)

"El tejido es de seda en tonos azul, crudo, rojo y amarillo e hilos dorados, y su ligamento es de taqueté, con la decoración formada de *bastas enlazadas en tafetán por una urdimbre de ligamento sobre el cruzamiento de la urdimbre de base y otras tramas*, dando como resultado un tejido de aspecto completamente tramado, mate y de contornos nítidos."

It seems clear to me except for the part between *asterisks*, and I am assuming that the key to this part lies in the meaning of "urdimbre de ligamento" and "urdimbre de base".

Thanks in advance.
