As the very name says, a basket-weave pattern resembles the crisscross composition of a basket and is an amazing pattern to be used in contemporary settings. This design can be woven with ribbon, printed on the fabric, and you’ll get a symmetrical effect like a checkerboard. Basket-weave patterns can be found in multiple color combinations from neutral to bright. Here is an amazing Global Views Noodle Felt Pillow-Bone.
Brocade looks good when used in upholstery and drapes. Brocade pattern looks equally lovely on bedding and fabric accessories. It’s a heavy material woven on a Jacquard loom. A real brocade design looks embroidered, but in reality, it is actually woven into the fabric. Usually made of silk or satin, it often even incorporates metallic threads or similar decorative touches. Brocade usually has subdued colors while its use is common in traditional decorating schemes.

A checked pattern is similar to a checkerboard and is a simple design that boasts an alternate of two different colored squares.
