Stripe patterns are created by colour weaving pieces of fabric. These are made by either changing the colours of the warp or weft yarns depending with way the stripes will run through the fabric. These bands of fabrics are generally the same thickness throughout the fabric but can be different, creating a pattern called unbalanced stripes. The Stripes can be alternating colours or lots of different colours. The two colours usually contrast with each other and there are many different types of stripe fabrics, such as Pinstripe, horizontal stripe, pencil stripe and vertical stripes.
