    For each weave you got :

    For manual control loom
    1 standard graphic with threading and treadling

    1 graphic with  threading and liftplan


    For digital control loom
    1 standard WIF with threading and treadling

    1 WIF with threading and liftplan


     Tips 
    #1 our weaving method requires a binding warp, your fabric will be more beautiful with a binding warp half the size of ground warp. No need to have 2 beams with natural materials.
    #2 covering weft will make sure the binding warp vanished
