German term or phrase: Gewebekunde
This is from a list of topics covered at a night school course in "Basic Textile Knowledge" (Textiles Basiswissen) by a manager in the textile industry.

Der Kurs umfasste folgende Fachgebiete:

- Faserstoffe
- Garne und Zwirne
- Bindungstechnik
- Maschenware
- Textilveredlung
- **Gewebekunde**
- Textilkennzeichnung
- Bekleidung/Mode - Modetrends
- Technische Textilien
- Heimtextilien

Any ideas for how to translate "Gewebekunde" here? Textile studies is the only thing that comes to my mind but it seems a bit general...

Many thanks
