Describing fabric made to be used on both sides.

* Many woven fabrics are automatically reversible, e.g. all plain weaves, herringbones, wool flannels, tweeds, plaids, woven stripes, and purpose designed damasks and jacquards.

* Some reversible fabrics look exactly the same on both sides, whereas with others one side is the reverse of the other.

* Double faced fabrics are either woven or bonded together, creating two sides of equal merit.

* Very few printed fabrics can be used on both sides, unless the softer under side is chosen for one project and the face side for another. Ajrakh printing, one of the earliest Indian methods, however is specifically designed to be reversible; both sides may or may not look the same.
