I need to call upon all you experts out there. What is the difference between the terms “textile” and “fabric”?
As I understand it:
Fabric – the stuff off the bolt/roll; fiber or other materials woven, knitted, or otherwise manufactured into sheets that can be manipulated to produce various goods.
Textiles – the stuff off the bolt or roll, and the products made from it. A more all-encompassing term, includes yarn and yarn products, and anything related to fiber.
