Fashion and textile

Fashion/Textile spans a wide range of fiber art-based practices such as quilting, thread painting, lace-working, beading, and weaving. Fashion/textile artists typically use loom, warp, and weft which may be stretched to cover such divergent applications as computer-generated Jacquard, tapestry, and even sculpture.
