We address the difficulties of producing black and white checkerboard woven fabrics, then we present a modular approach for generating duotone weaving designs using simple (2-shaft) looms, and use this approach to design checkerboard weaving patterns. We then propose ideas for how more complex weaving designs can be developed for looms equipped with more shafts.
