French

From alteration of Middle French tissir, from Old French tissir, formed analogically from the original tistre, itself from Latin texere, present active infinitive of texō, from Proto-Italic *teksō, either from Proto-Indo-European *tḗtḱ-ti or from *teḱ-se-ti, both from *teḱ- (to beget, produce). The original past participle was tissu.
