Difference between Textile and Fabric definitions

Did you ever wonder what the difference between the words textile and fabric are?

Today the words are used as synonymous for textile.  However, there are subtle differences between the two in specialized usage.

We will attempt to explain.

Both the textile and fabric words are used for woven fabric.
The difference is that FABRIC has traditionally meant a woven fabric and is a general term used for clothing.  Its fibers are usually weaved, knitted, crocheted, etc.
TEXTILE is a much broader term usually applied to the entire clothing industry (ie. textile industry).  Its fibers are intertwined and can be braided, felted, twisted, etc.  Can have various connotations such as fabric of society or fabricated products.

Hope this helps!
