I recently picked up a wonderful book published by Thames & Hudson, Textiles: The Whole Story by Beverly Gordon. It covers the history of textiles, both as functional pieces, as an art form and it shows the portrayal of textiles in art. Then the book moves on to show how textiles are now being used, not only the obvious clothing, but as tools in medicine, as new form of art in yarmbombing.
