Swatch

original pattern for a fabric, created on the basis of an engineering design by a designer. This method of exclusive design is well-established in the wool industry, facilitating (by means of a number of coloured stripes in the thread of the warp and thrown coloured wefts) the creation of a wide range of colour combinations in a single pattern, sometimes with modifications to the weave. Only those designs which are considered the most successful are put into production.
