Textiles and Clothing

Spinning and weaving are among the earliest arts. In the twisting of

fibers, hairs, grasses, and sinews by rolling them between the thumb and

fingers, palms of the hands, or palms and naked thigh, we have the

original of the spinning wheel and the steam-driven cotton spindle; in

the roughest plaiting we have the first hint of the finest woven cloth.

The need of securing things or otherwise strengthening them then led to

binding, fastening, and sewing.
