Braiding is a technique that interlaces a minimum of three threads or strips diagonally across to form a narrow band that can be flat or tubular. Braids are most frequently used for trimmings and can also be sewn together to form a larger surface, such as a mat or rug. Braided textiles are usually two-dimensional in interiors, while three-dimensional braids can be found in technical applications.
