Textile Art
Weaving is an ancient art, because it covers one of the basic needs of man, the need to warm his body and protect himself from the elements of nature. Weaving belongs to Folk Art, and together with embroidery and knitting, it is the three forms of handicraft that cover the needs of every housewife in clothing for the home and for individuals. It has been considered women’s work since the time of Homer (Penelope, Circe). It is unknown to us when and where the weaving technique first began. Excavations have shown that weaving originated in Egypt. Later than Mesopotamia and newer excavations pointed to South Siberia as the country of origin.Ever since man replaced the animal’s sheepskin with a piece of cloth, we have the beginning of the textile industry. In Greece it begins with the Neolithic era. Plant and animal materials (cotton, flax, wool, silk) were used as textile fibers.
