    The software is ArahPaint (drawing part) and ArahWeave (weavig part), check the arahne web page
    for more details, manuals, tutorials and demo version (runs on Linux).

  2. We don't have multi color in single pick. It is an extra weft fabric, where several picks of different color are on the same area, crammed with regulator. Regulator stops the fabric beam from advancing during weaving, so several picks appear to be on the same area.
    Trust me, it is not a print design, but a real design for woven fabric.
