Tubular double weave is normally woven into one continuing tube, but narrow horizontal tube sections can also be weaved into the same warp. In the table looms, this can be easily done with four shafts, but in the floor looms it takes four shafts and eight treadles.
The number of treadles can be reduced by adding plain weave treadles to the normal four shaft tube to close the cavity sections.

The warp is 6-ply cotton twine, which withstands weaving well.
The tube sections are filled with cotton wool or felt cloth.
