We offer four different weaves, four different prices for four different markets. The weave quality depends on the number of filament pairs with which the braid is manufactured. The higher the number, the thinner the filament is and the greater number of stitches per square inch. The prices depend on this because of the intricacy of the work required. Stitches per Square Inch approximately are as follows 11:120 – 15:160 – 19:240 – 21:320.
