- adj. From the French "décocher". A way or method of recording the bindings of a weave. It is the record of the number warp threads between the adjacent bindings points on succesive picks. The déchochement number is always one more than the interrumption number. It is counted from the lower left to the upper right on the weft face of the textile, and from the lower right to the upper left on the warp face.
