In 1805, a British official, Benjamin
Heyne, listed the manufactures of Bangalore which included the following: Women’s cloth of different musters and names Coarse chintz Muslins Silk cloths. Of the list, which kind of cloth would have
definitely fallen out of use in the early 1800s and
why? 

Answer: By 1800 in Europe, Spinning technology had improved with the spinning jenny (1764) and
then the spinning mule (1779), which could spin strong, fine thread good enough for making muslin.
