Hairline Stripes

Hairline stripes are the thinnest kind of stripes available. The stripes are usually the diameter of a human hair, hence the name and these stripes can be in any direction including horizontally, vertically and diagonally. Because of the width of the stripe, quite often more than one stripe is place together to create a bolder pattern. This pattern can be colour woven into a fabric using different colour warps or wefts.
