On the horizontal looms, a linen fabric called double warp or double warp is created. The workshop is hemmed with two warps in contrasting colors, and the weaving uses two wefts in the colors of the warp. With a strip called "mycobacterium" the weaver moves the threads of the lower warp upwards, and the upper - downwards, and binds them with a weft of the same color. A fabric is created in which the left side is the negative of the right. The double warp fabric can be presented from two sides. Double warp weaving is currently practiced in Poland in only one region. In the north-eastern part of the country there is the Janów commune, where the ladies cultivate this beautiful, but difficult tradition. Outside the country, this technique is still used in Italy, Spain, Mexico and Peru, and in the old days it was known in many regions of Europe, in Poland carpets, bedspreads made by both professional weavers and housewives, decorated the altar steps of many churches, from the holidays they covered beds, and made of hard-to-reach wool, they were part of the bride's dowry.
