- Technique in which strands of pliable material, often three or four strands, are intertwined so as to form a plait, band, or rope. An example is in textile work, where flat over-and-under oblique interlacing is achieved using the undifferentiated elements of a single set of strands, characterized by the oblique crossings of the elements and their common directional trend. Other examples include in the making of leather items, basketmaking, and in styling of hair.
- Visual works or parts of works, such as elements of costume, furnishings, ceremonial objects, or decorations, that are made of feathers. Generally the feathers are either adhered to a solid support or tied individually to a woven support. Important examples of featherwork are found in Mexico and South America.
- Of or belonging to the nation of Peru or its people.
- Pendant trimming, decoration, or garment, comprising loose strands. Before the 20th century, usually a wooden mold covered with strands of silk or worsted; now often merely a bunch of threads, cords, or other strands gathered together at the top.
- General term for carpets, fabrics, costume, or other works made of textile materials, which are natural or synthetic fibers created by weaving, felting, knotting, twining, or otherwise processing. For works of art or high craft that employ textile as a medium, prefer "textile art (visual works)."
