Nakedness

"Cloth" - a synonym for textile - has the same meaning as "clothe" - to cover. Naked things, like naked people, demand to be covered. In covering nakedness, whether of people or of things, we accomplish these five basic purposes: 

1. We protect and insulate 

2. We facilitate contact with the world

3. We hide defects and weaknesses 

4. We give the appearance we wish to give 

5. We decorate
