Overall patterns are patterns that are repeated throughout the entire piece of fabric. There are many types of overall pattern. These include non-directional, one-directional, packed, tossed and set patterns. The repeat of these patterns has to be seamless and they can be made up of various motifs or designs. Depending on the pattern this can either be colour woven or printed onto the fabric.
