SHOKU, SHIKI
o(ru)
meaning: weave

織機 == shokki == loom
織物 (also == 織り物orimono == textiles


Left radical is 'thread' (糸), right is 'marker/lance', composed of 'noise' (音) and 'halberd'. The left radical obviously relates to weaving, but the meaning of the right radical is disputed. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Weave threads with noise like a lance.'
