Textiles are classified according to their component fibers into natural fiber textiles or man-made fiber textiles (Synthetic Textiles). The natural fibers may be further classed according to origin as animal, vegetable, or inorganic fibers. Natural fiber like silk, wool, linen, cotton, & synthetic fibers such as rayon, nylon, & polyesters, & some inorganic fibers, such as cloth of gold, glass fiber, & asbestos cloth. Textiles are classified as to their structure or weave, according to the manner in which warp & weft cross each other. Quality in textiles depends on several factors, such as the character of the yarn spun from the fibers, whether clean, smooth, fine, or coarse & whether hard, soft, or medium twisted. Density of weave & finishing processes are also important elements in determining the quality of fabrics.

- Jacquard, Joseph Marie, 1752–1834, French inventor, whose loom is of the greatest importance in modern mechanical figure weaving. After several years of experimentation, he received a bronze medal for his model exhibited at the Industrial Exposition at Paris (1801). In 1806 his perfected loom was bought by the state and declared public property, and he was granted an annuity of 3,000 francs and a royalty on all looms sold. The Jacquard loom, the first machine to weave in patterns, has had countless adaptations in the modern textile industry.
- Tapestry, hand-woven fabric of plain weave made without shuttle or drawboy, the design of weft threads being threaded into the warp with fingers or a bobbin. The name has been extended to cover a variety of heavy materials, such as imitation tapestries woven on Jacquard looms, tapestry carpets, and upholstery and drapery stuffs. True tapestries include various primitive textiles woven on the rudest of early looms, as well as the famous pictorial hangings of the Middle Ages.
- Nonwoven, a fabric made of fibers autogenously bonded through the action of a chemical agent or heating device, or adhering by means of resinous substances.
- Spun-bonding, a process for forming nonwoven fabrics, usually of limited durability, by bonding continuous-filament synthetic fibers immediately after extrusion.
- Graphite cloth, a nonwoven fabric made by embedding carbon fibers in a plastic bonding material, used in layers as a substitute for sheet metal, as in the construction of aircraft wings.
