Textile, a term encompassing a wide range of materials, refers to a flexible material formed by weaving, knitting, crocheting, knotting, or felting natural or artificial fibers, commonly known as thread or yarn. The characteristics of textiles vary depending on the types of fibers used and the processes employed in their creation, allowing them to be tailored for specific applications. Textiles are designed with various properties such as strength, elasticity, durability, absorption, insulation, and resistance to wear. The working mechanism of textiles involves the complex interplay of fibers, utilizing mechanical and chemical processes to shape and alter them into functional fabric. This intricate structure allows for diverse advantages such as versatility in design, thermal regulation, moisture management, and provision of comfort. The integration of traditional crafts with modern designs and the commitment to preserving traditional textile crafts in the GCC region are some of the factors that are resulting in the expansion of the market.
