Textile art is the creation of decorated objects with textiles or creation with textiles.

Textile artists use various techniques to create works of art using threads and fibers sometimes in combination with paints or dyes.

Traditionally the term art was used to refer to any skill or mastery, a concept which altered during the Romantic period of the nineteenth century, when art came to be seen as "a special faculty of the human mind to be classified with religion and science".  This distinction between craft and fine art is applied to the textile arts as well, where the term fiber art or textile art is now used to describe textile-based decorative objects which are not intended for practical use.
