WEAVING . HISTORY OF WEAVING.
Weaving is the systematic interlacing of two or more sets of elements usually, but not necessarily, at right angles, to form a coherent structure. No one knows when or where the weaving process actually began, but as far back as there are relics of civilized life, it is thought that weaving was a part of developing cultures.

Arid regions, bog lands, sealed tombs, and extremely cold areas. Because of these artifacts we have some examples of early textiles and weaving tools.
The every day needs of our prehistoric ancestors led them to create objects using fiber as a medium. It is thought that ancient humans instinctively used weaving as an aid in their quest for basic needs of food, shelter, and clothing. Men realized the possibilities of the woven structure after observing spider webs, birds' nests, or the construction of a beaver's dam. These findings led to the interlacing of twigs or vines, and resulted in netting which surely assisted humans in catching fish and trapping game. In addition, by using twining or braiding techniques, it is likely that primitive people learned to make mats to cover floors of huts, which helped insulate against dampness or cold. Later, people used weaving skills for outside of the shelters.
One valued artifact of ancient weaving is the funerary model of a weaver's workshop, which was found in an Egyptian tomb. This model contains a horizontal loom, warping devices and other tools, and weavers in action. We can also take note of the garments worn by the people.
ANCIENT FABRICS OF THE HEBREWS DATE BACKAS EARLY AS 3OOO B.C. THE MOST COMMON WERE WOOL AND LINEN. LINEN WAS VERY EXPENSIVE AND IN THE OLD TESTAMENT WE READ ABOUT THIS .IT INDICATES THAT SOME GARMENTS MADE OF LINEN HAD GOLD AND SILVER. ONE LAW STATED THAT IT WAS PROHIBITIVE TO WEAR FABRICS MADE FROM MIXING LINEN AND WOOL FIBERS.

As weavers in China began using silk in many of their elegant garments and tapestries, and later, as fabrics began to be exported, people outside of China became envious and somewhat resentful of the discovery. Despite the interest and curiosity of others, the process of cultivating silk remained a mystery and a well-kept secret to the outside world for over 3000 years.
