 A textile could also be a versatile material consisting of a network of natural or artificial fibers (yarn or thread). Yarn is produced by spinning raw fibres of wool, flax, cotton, hemp, or other materials to provide long strands. Textiles are formed by weaving, knitting, crocheting, knotting, tatting, felting, or braiding. The related words "fabric" and "cloth" and "material" are often utilized in textile assembly trades (such as tailoring and dressmaking) as synonyms for textile. However, there are subtle differences in these terms in specialized usage. A textile is any material made from interlacing fibres, including carpeting and geotextiles. A fabric may be a material made through weaving, knitting, spreading, crocheting, or bonding which will be utilized in production of further goods (garments, etc.). Cloth could also be used synonymously with fabric but is usually a bit of cloth that has been processed. The word 'textile' is from Latin, from the adjective textilis, meaning 'woven', from textus, the perfect participle of the verb texere, 'to weave'. The word 'fabric' also derives from Latin, last from the middle French fabrique, or 'building, thing made', and earlier because the Latin fabrica 'workshop; an art, trade; a skilful production, structure, fabric', which is from the Latin faber, or 'artisan who works in hard materials', from PIE dhabh-, meaning 'to fit together'. The word 'cloth' derives from the Old English clað, meaning a cloth, woven or felted material to wrap around one, from Proto-Germanic kalithaz (compare O.Frisian 'klath', Middle Dutch 'cleet', Dutch 'kleed', Middle High German 'kleit', and German 'kleid', all meaning "garment")
