About Weaving and Helical Holes

Weaving is an invention of man, and maybe one of the most important inventions in the field of construction. There are many weave patterns but most weave patterns are based on just two different grids, the plain weave and the three way weave. The development of weaving is mainly connected to the possibilities of manufacturing. In this paper I want to investigate this ‘passing one thread over another’-concept from a mathematical-artistic point of view.
