A bag of Andean complementary weaves, the technique used is a modified intermesh and twill.The modified intermesh can be compared to the pebble weave structure, It is also a complementary weave, in which both sides are equal but with reversed colors and in a mirror image. The modified intermesh uses parts of the pebble weave patterning, for instance the 2/2 twill lines and some of the dots. However the background has a different tie down scheme with single threads in stead of pairs. In general this structure is less regulated than the pebble weave. In most cases the pattern is in the light color. You can weave the structure with tablets in the same way as a pebble weave.
