You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble‐sanded beaches of Santraginus Ⅴ, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a mini raft down the slow heavy river Moth; wet it for use in hand‐to‐hand‐combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you — daft as a bush, but very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough. (‘Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ by Douglas Adams)
And that’s almost all what there is to say. Cloth or textile is very intuitive to use, although a manual like Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy can become handy in extreme situations. Even our dog finds use for cloth. She seem to enjoy lying on blanket rather than on plain floor. Moreover, some insects and animals have also discovered the secret how to weave. Spider makes the web, larva spins the cocoon, and weaver bird creates it’s nest.
