Binca

Binca is an English (UK) trade name given to a form of embroidery canvas that is woven in groups of threads, rather than individual threads. It is consequently sometimes classed as a mock-leno weave. It is the same as aida, but slightly coarser, with about 2-3 meshes per cm. The name binca appears in the late 1960's. It is sometimes used in English publications as a synonym for aida or bincanette.
