We use clothes to cover ourselves form external factors which might cause injuries or harm and also from other natural phenomena like heat, rain, cold, etc. The clothes we use depend on the climate and the season. We use woolen clothes in winter, cotton clothes in summer and thus the need of different types of clothes increases. Clothing is of many types and these are collectively called as textiles. Although now the different types of fabrics have increased tenfold, the historic woolen, cotton and silk are the ones that are still most widely used.
Textiles can be made from many materials and these materials come from four main sources. The sources are plants, animals, minerals and synthetic. Woolen clothes come from natural sources such as the sheep’s fur. The silk we use is made from the silk worms which are an insect. Likewise the cotton material we use comes from plants. The source of flax and jute materials is also the plants. The nylon material, polyester comes from the synthetic types. Thus the clothing type differs and these different types are used in different seasons to wear. The cost of clothing depends upon how there are made and the dyes used in the dress. For example, a silk dress costs more than a cotton one because the weaving process is done to make silk which is harder maintain and the dyes used are of high price. So managing these clothing also needs much care. The silk and woolen types of clothing should not be washed in water but it should be dried under the sun and a dry-cleaning method can be used. Some clothes should wash separately because there is a chance that the color of the dress might come out and get mixed in water. The washing powder we use should not contain any chemical agent which harms the dresses and its charm. Thus clothes can be maintained effectively and seasonal too.
