This is special because...
Cotton has been cultivated in Mexico for thousands of years. However the introduction of the foot pedal loom in the 1500s followed by the flying shuttle loom, made the process of weaving a lot faster. It enabled weavers to make much wider and lighter weight textiles like these 100% cotton cleaning cloths.
