What are woven textiles and dyed textiles?

Textiles made by weaving pre-dyed thread are called "orimono". They are made by interlacing two sets of threads, the warp and the weft. Using different thread materials as well as dyeing and weaving techniques, fabrics with a wide variety of color patterns and textures can be made. Conversely, textiles that are woven first before being dyed are called "senshokuhin". Other traditional Japanese textile crafts include "kumihimo" or braiding (traditionally used to decorate clothing and weapons), and "shishu" or embroidery.
