Definition of the word weave can take various meanings depending on the context. But for the purpose of this study, it will be taken as an art of making something especially fabric simply by passing threads or strips crosswise over and under lengthwise ones, by hand or on a certain implement. Weaving is sometimes alternated with knitting to refer to the same thing. In life, weaving could refer to the struggles involved in making ends meet. In the threads of life, (Barber, 1991) argues that weaving has been made to become an occupation particularly in the garment industry or and the carpet industry. In more technical terms, weaving is the coordinated intertwining of more than two sets of ingredients usually perpendicular to each other to form a sensible structure.
