From what I can see, the aida has a very distinct "box of fibers" that is surrounded by the holes. In the one over one that I purchased, there is no box, so to speak. I am at a loss to describe any better as I have only worked on aida

Aida Cloth is woven in blocks of threads, so in Aida 18 you have 18 blocks (groups) of threads to 1 inch (or 2.5 centimetres). In other 18 count material (e.g. Monocanvas which is used for Needlepoint with wool), you would have 18 individual threads to each inch or 2.5 centimetres.
