**Name** some fabrics in your surroundings.

Some fabrics present in our surroundings are:

**Bedsheets, blankets, curtains, table cloths, towels, and dusters.**

**[Extra information:** In ancient times stitching was not known. People used to simply drape the fabrics around different parts of their bodies. Even today a number of unstitched fabrics are used by both men and women. These are **Saree, dhoti, lungi, turban, dupatta, etc. **There are so many different varieties or types of fabrics available today, these can be either natural or artificial. Some of them are as follows:-

1. Cotton- It is a natural fibre of cotton plants. It is a staple fibre, which means it is composed of different, varying lengths of fibres.

2. Chiffon- It is a lightweight, plain-woven fabric with a slight shine.

3. Crêpe- It is a silk, wool, or synthetic fabric usually light-to- medium-weight, which is popular in home decor for items like pillows, curtains, and window treatments.

4. Canvas- This fabric is made of heavy cotton yarn and to a lesser extent linen yarn, due to which is known for being durable, strong and heavy-duty.

5. Leather- It is a durable, wrinkle-resistant fabric, which is made from animal hides or skins**]**
