The paper highlights the results of research of textile impressions on the inside of fragments of ceramic vessels from the collection of fortified settlement Arkaim in the Southern Trans-Urals. The technological characteristics of textiles, reconstructed on the basis of the analysis of impressions-positives from imprints, are given. All textiles have a woven structure, represented by different variants of tabby weave. A large proportion of damage on the textiles indicates their secondary use in pottery, whereas initially the products could be part of the garment. Technological parameters of the fabrics indicate the use of a classic loom, the closest analogies are traced in other funeral sites of the Sintashta culture (cemeteries Kamenny Ambar-5, Krivoye Ozero, Bestamak and others).
