Textiles - General

Textiles are flexible materials composed of a network of natural or artificial threads. A variety of techniques, including weaving, sewing, knitting, crocheting, plaiting, and looping, are used to arrange and hold the threads together.

During the 15th century, wealthy merchants controlled the textile industry by purchasing raw wool, hiring specialists to turn the wool into cloth, and selling the cloth to dyers.
