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.

For example, in the textile industry, fabric refers to the material used in the production of clothing, upholstery, and other textile products. In the construction industry, fabric refers to the material used in the production of tents, tarps, and other protective coverings.

In the automotive industry, fabric is used to make seat covers, floor mats, and other interior components of a car.

In the field of medical, fabric is used to make surgical gowns, bandages, and other medical products.

In the field of packaging, fabric is used to make bags, covers, and other protective packaging materials.

It's worth noting that fabric is an essential material in many industrial and manufacturing processes, and it plays a critical role in a wide range of products and applications. With the advancement of technology, new and innovative fabrics are being developed that offer improved performance, durability, and sustainability.
