Deutsch: Textilie
A fabric, textile or cloth is a flexible woven material consisting of a network of natural or artificial fibres often referred to as thread or yarn. Yarn is produced by spinning raw fibres of wool, flax, cotton, or other material to produce long strands. Textiles are formed by weaving, knitting, crocheting, knotting, or pressing fibres together (felt). 

In an industrial or manufacturing context, "fabric" typically refers to a material made by weaving, knitting, or bonding fibers together. Fabrics can be made from a wide range of materials, including natural fibers such as cotton, wool, and silk, as well as synthetic fibers such as polyester, nylon, and rayon.
