Defining Muslin

Defining Muslin Whilst contemporary definitions may not always be clear, historically muslin was easily defined. It was defined as being a cotton fabric, characterised by its impressive lightness, as well as distinctive motifs. True muslin was produced solely from a cotton plant that grew exclusively along the banks of a certain stretch of the Brahmaputra River. It was an incredibly delicate, handwoven cloth, with the myth being, that if placed on grass in the morning dew, the cloth would seem to be invisible, so fine and translucent was it.
