Textiles are cloth and fabric, which is created by weaving, braiding and other binding techniques. Yarn, felt and other plant or animal fibres are used to make textiles. Textile art is the result of using these materials and techniques to create pieces of art. The artwork is not generally intended for practical use. It is instead intended to be visually appealing and to be displayed rather than used. Textile artists create art using various techniques. These include embroidery, needlework, knitting and quilting. In addition, dyeing and printing are used to add colour and pattern. The artwork may depict recognisable scenes or be entirely abstract.
