Glossary

estilo e identidad
The link between the particular textile style and the way it signals identity among its wearers as being part of the same group. The textile style includes its form, structures and techniques, iconographic composition, use of colours etc.
Estilo local atacame├▒o
Regional textile style especially using warp faced weaves with transposed bands and warps at various periods.
Estilo local influido por las tierras altas
Textile style that shows the influence of Highland cultures, in some cases those of the Inka.
estilo tecnol├│gico
Technological aspect linked to textile production and the socialisation of these developments in society, that in their entirety give a certain style to textile products. It includes both teh developments in the construction and complexity of the loom, its equipment and instruments, and the gradual improvements in the elaboration of a cloth, and the structural and technical characteristics of textile composition that can be generated with these technological aspects as a basis or background.
estilo textil
Way of making a textile to obtain a product with particular or distinctive characteristics taking into account geographical, cultural, compositional and iconographic factors.
estilo y diferencia
The link between the particular txetile style and the way it indicates differences between groups. The textile style includes its form, structures and techniques, iconographic composition, use of colours etc.
estructura compleja para entrelazado oblicuo
Simple structure equivalent to a warp of 1. In complex structures for oblique interlacing, strands of three distinct colours or more are used.
estructura compleja para faz de urdimbre, urdida a 3
Complex textile structure in warp face, woven in three layers.
estructura compleja para faz de urdimbre, urdida a 4
Complex textile structure in warp face, woven in 4 layers.
estructura compleja para faz de urdimbre, urdida a 5
Complex textile structure in warp face, woven in 5 layers.
estructura compleja para faz de urdimbre, urdida a 6
Complex textile structure in warp face, woven in 6 layers.
estructura compleja para faz de urdimbre, urdida a 7
Complex textile structure in warp face, woven in 7 layers.
estructura compleja para faz de urdimbre, urdida a 8
Complex textile structure in warp face, woven in 8 layers.
estructura compleja para trenzado
Structure where strands of three or more colours and 8 or more warp threads are used.
estructura compleja para tubular
The array of structures for crossed warp with 1 weft, in tubular form, they are woven as 1, in simple form. However, in the most complex examples they are made with more than 3 colours and 8 or more warp threads.
estructura compleja para urdimbre cruzada con 1 trama, urdida a 1
In complex examples of crossed warp with 1 weft, the structure is still simple, warped in 1 layer, but normally using 3 or more colours and 8 or more warp threads.
estructura compleja para urdimbre cruzada con 1 trama, urdida a 1, con 3 colores y 10 urdimbres
In complex examples of crossed warp with 1 weft, the structure is still simple, warped in 1 layer, but in this case using 3 colours and 10 warp threads.
estructura compleja para urdimbre cruzada con 1 trama, urdida a 1, con 3 colores y 12 urdimbres
In complex examples of crossed warp with 1 weft, the structure is still simple, warped in 1 layer, but in this case using 3 colours and 12 warp threads.
estructura compleja para urdimbre cruzada con 1 trama, urdida a 1, con 3 colores y 8 urdimbres
In complex examples of crossed warp with 1 weft, the structure is still simple, warped in 1 layer, but in this case using 3 colours and 8 warp threads.
estructura compleja para urdimbre cruzada con 1 trama, urdida a 1, con 7 colores y 24 urdimbres
In complex examples of crossed warp with 1 weft, the structure is still simple, warped in 1 layer, but in this case using 7 colours and 24 warp threads.
estructura para anudado
Type of mesh in which the structure is simple, equivalent to a single warp.
estructura para enlazado
In intertwining techniques, the directionality of the weft or warp is worked in two directions simultaneously, wrapping teh threads of the opposite access with truns to the rigth and the left, although the dominant relationship between the weft on one access and the warp on the other does not change. In both cases, the intertwining structure is of a single warp.
estructura para enlazado de trama
In the techniques of weft intertwining, the directionality of the weft is worked in two directions simultaneously, wrapping the warp threads with turns to right and left, although the dominant relationship between the warp on one axis and the weft on the other does not change. The structure of this form of intertwining is of a single warp.
estructura para enlazado de urdimbre
In the techniques known as 'warp plaiting', the directionality of the weft is worked in two directions simultaneously, wrapping the warp threads with turns to right and left, although the dominant relationship between the warp on one axis and the weft on the other does not change. The structure of this form of intertwining is of a single warp.
estructura para entrelazado oblicuo
In the oblique interlacing techniques the warp elements are worked without making use of a weft. The structure is simple, equivalent to warp in 1 layer.
estructura para equilibrado, urdida a 1
Simple balanced structure, warped in 1 layer.
estructura para faz de trama, urdida a 1
Simple weft faced structure, warped in 1 layer.
estructura para faz de urdimbre
Structure for warp faced cloth, and refers to the form of the warp with figure 8 turns on the longitudinal axis of the loom (or its pre-loom equivalent).
estructura para gasa
The structure for gauze is simple, equivalent to warping in 1 layer. The principal characteristics of the gauze techniques is the formation of crosses (the so-called 'gauze cross') in which alternate threads of the warp cross and then re-cross to return to their original position after the passes of the weft to secure this cross, producing the characteristic open work pattern.
estructura para malla
Structure based on a horizontal element whose continuous intertwining produces rows that generate the textile surface, of a simple type, equivalent to a single warp layer.
