While working on the Textile merit badge, Scouts learn about the many uses of fabrics and fibers. They investigate how textiles are manufactured and the properties of different materials. They also explore careers related to the production of textiles.

People use countless fibers and fabrics in their everyday lives: clothes, carpets, curtains, towels, sheets, upholstered furniture. Add to that list boat sails, book bindings, bandages, flags, sleeping bags, mailbags, airbags, seat belts, backpacks, parachutes, umbrellas, basketball nets, and more.
