This gets a bit technical but with a plain woven cloth, the warp and weft threads cross at right angles, aligned so they form a simple criss-cross pattern. Each weft thread crosses the warp threads by going over one, then under the next, and so on. The next weft thread goes under the warp threads that its neighbor went over, and vice versa. This sounds simple because it is, it's one of the oldest weaves.
Fabrics form chiffon to canvas can be made with the plain weave, the difference in final texture being the yarn weight.
We use a fairly standard weight of canvas for our plastic free satchel. Adding vibrance and beauty by using natural plant based eco-dying methods to colour the base of the bag. Our Turmeric colour is dyed using real turmeric. The Rock Salt grey colour is named for Indian black salt and dyed with a native Indian seed.
