Panama-like fabric (derived plain weave)

derived linen weave in which the linen binding point is enlarged to at least double its initial extent; this is achieved by weaving together two or three threads in linen weave in the warp and weft. Where two warp and weft threads are woven together, the weave is referred to as Panama. This weave is also used in the woollen fabrics of men's suits and coats. In a thin-pick cotton fabric it is used for embroidery.
