The earliest mentions of muslin date back to the ancient era in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Historically, muslin was a highly in-demand fabric, and it has been traded around the globe for thousands of years. It was initially found by European merchants in Mosul, Iraq, hence named Muslin.
For centuries, muslin weavers in India and Bangladesh were obliged to weave various textiles while muslin was brought in from Europe as a luxury item. Self-reliance and peaceful resistance to British rule were important goals for Gandhi, the leader of the Indian independence movement, who began spinning his own yarn to make the cloth known as khadi, which is a type of muslin.
In the plain weave technique, a single weft thread is woven over and under a single warp thread in an alternating pattern. The use of muslin in fashion prototypes, where patterns are tested on the fabric before being cut and sewn into the final product, has brought a lot of attention in recent years to the fabric.
Muslin cloth has a surface that is very fine and smooth and is woven in a loose, basic pattern, and is delicate in nature. The fabric can be bleached or piece-dyed and can also be patterned with hand-block, screen-print, or digital print depending on the design.

In addition, the fabric has a sheen, which contributes to its high durability.
