Dressed as in her wedding garments,

Shephard, Satins and twills: An introduction to the geometry of fabrics, Math.
Isonemal prefabrics with only parallel axes of symmetry
All of the rectangular satins, which have always been of interest, are of this type, and we pause to consider them.
Isonemal Prefabrics with Perpendicular Axes of Symmetry
Rectangular satins Rectangular satins are the simplest examples of species 26.
Isonemal Prefabrics with Perpendicular Axes of Symmetry
In species 26o, satins result from darkening cells containing half-turn centres along alternate mirrors.
Isonemal Prefabrics with Perpendicular Axes of Symmetry
In species 26e, satins result from darkening alternate cells containing half-turn centres along the mirrors containing just them in such a way that, along the perpendicular mirrors, such cells are either all dark or all not.
Isonemal Prefabrics with Perpendicular Axes of Symmetry
The horizontal distance moved, ca + db cells, is the satin offset s or n − s, where n is the order.
Isonemal Prefabrics with Perpendicular Axes of Symmetry
Rectangular satins are of two kinds, those of even order not divisible by 4 and those of order divisible by 4, falling in the species 26o and 26e respectively. A satin results from distributing dark cells in the way characteristic of a satin, as in Figure 4a.
Isonemal Prefabrics with Perpendicular Axes of Symmetry
This n is the order of the satin that is the basis, but the order of the resulting fabric 4ab = 24, half its two-dimensional period and always divisible by 4, by 8 if b is even (11e ). A fabric example with this group is illustrated in Figure 5a.
Isonemal Prefabrics with Perpendicular Axes of Symmetry
Rhombic satins Rhombic satins are the simplest examples of Roth type 28.
Isonemal Prefabrics with Perpendicular Axes of Symmetry
Two of its subtypes have been illustrated by them, 28e by even-order rhombic satins and 28o by odd-order rhombic satins.
Isonemal Prefabrics with Perpendicular Axes of Symmetry
Those of even order require that either the cells containing the corners of the rhombic lattice unit be darkened or the centre since both fall in cells as in the (8, 3) satin in Figure 13a.
Isonemal Prefabrics with Perpendicular Axes of Symmetry
The even and the odd satins, however, are essentially distinct.
Isonemal Prefabrics with Perpendicular Axes of Symmetry
The family of even rhombic satins like (8, 3) begin by being based on a central rectangle with corners havingtwill spacing and then with rectangular-satin spacing with central-rectangle corners at cell corners.
Isonemal Prefabrics with Perpendicular Axes of Symmetry
The family of odd rhombic satins like (15, 11) does not begin with central rectangle corners at twill spacing because, as the 2/1 twill illustrates, that spacing with corners on cell boundaries gives rise to twills not satins.
Isonemal Prefabrics with Perpendicular Axes of Symmetry
Column 3 lists rectangular satins that might be expected to be rhombic.
