What are Textiles?

Textiles are cloth materials made from fibres, woven by hand or machine. For most of history, these fibres came from plants and animals. These days, many fibres are produced by chemical and technical methods.

Things containing textiles

Plants provide most of the fibres for textiles. Cotton fibres produce soft, absorbent fabrics that are widely used for clothing, sheets, and towels. Fibres of the flax plant are made into linen, which is a popular fabric for tablecloths, napkins, handkerchiefs and clothing.
