Overshot is a complex 4-shaft variation weave structure that was traditionally woven in Southern Appalachia and Central to Eastern Canada in the 1800s among professional and home weavers alike (many of them Scottish settlers). The structure is often chimed to be a quintessential articulation of handwoven cloth—the structure could not be adapted to industrialized, automated weaving methods. You will never find this cloth in a fabric store.
