- n. The term "lampas" overlaps the definitions of other weaves, depending on the pattern. But, generally the term is used for a figured compound weave, to produce luxurious figured silks, in which a pattern, composed of weft floats bound by a binding warp, is added to a ground weave formed by a main warp and a main weft. It is understood also as a combination of two structures formed from plain weave, twill and/or satin bindings. Lampas juxtaposes two faces created with these structures. It has been developed in Syria and Iraq and notably in Spain.
