As civilizations became more advanced, weaving became more sophisticated. New tools and materials evolved, leading to the creation of specialized textiles and patterned fabrics. 

Weaving can be done with different materials, like cotton, silk, linen, or synthetic fibers, and common types of weaving include plain weave, twill weave, and satin weave. It can be a form of artistic expression, a hobby, or a professional practice.
