Abstract: Digital Jacquard textiles have been introduced through various approaches to the capability enhancement of color expression and novel design proposition in modern weaving. Because of its a wide scope of weave colors with a small number of fillings, the basic weave structure of satin is widely adopted in the creation of shaded weave series, as they are highly reliable in presenting the natural color shading with maximized luster. However, its surface texture is limited with consistent traverse lines attributed to regular stitching points in their structure combination. Therefore, a new silhouette of shaded weave series is proposed and explored with twills to enlarge and vary the woven texture effects. The shading effect with single twills will be presented in a linear and contrasting way; when small twill lines are cut and replaced, the converted format will enable the creation of a varied surface touch. By finding the base marks where the total interlacement of a repeat is proportionally divided, small twill lines are transformed by adding interweaving points to build into a series. Furthermore, the basic principles received from satin-based shaded series are applied to the achievement of gradient shading effects. In terms of weave pattern design, each color layer is individually designed with levels of grayscales and defines each color region and color density to achieve a high-quality color presentation, as well as a unique texture.
