Turn-Banded 2/1 Twill

A warp-faced twill weave with a weft interlacing order of over two, under one (or vice versa), with the direction of the diagonal changing after every second weft, on a horizontal axis (horizontal herringbone), and with the face of the weave turned after every third (or fifth) weft yarn, creating a design of horizontal bands.
