"Woven fabric is soft and unsteady. It needs support to stand. I have been looking for the way of making steady fabric without support. Fortunately I came across the techniques of ply-split braiding. Plied cords and the splitting cords constitute one plane, next exchange the parts easily, then spread possibility."
