Water Power
HYDROPOWER or WATER POWER (from Greek : ύδωρ, "water") is power derived from the energy of falling water or fast running water, which may be harnessed for useful purposes. Since ancient times, hydropower from many kinds of watermills has been used as a renewable energy source for irrigation and the operation of various mechanical devices, such as gristmills , sawmills , textile mills, trip hammers , dock cranes , domestic lifts , and ore mills. A trompe , which produces compressed air from falling water, is sometimes used to power other machinery at a distance. In the late 19th century, hydropower became a source for generating electricity . Cragside in Northumberland was the first house powered by hydroelectricity in 1878 and the first commercial hydroelectric power plant was built at Niagara Falls
Niagara Falls
in 1879. In 1881, street lamps in the city of Niagara Falls

Textiles
A TEXTILE or CLOTH is a flexible material consisting of a network of natural or artificial fibres (yarn or thread ). Yarn
Yarn
is produced by spinning raw fibres of wool , flax , cotton , hemp , or other material to produce long strands. Textiles are formed by weaving , knitting , crocheting , knotting , or felting . The words FABRIC and cloth are used in textile assembly trades (such as tailoring and dressmaking ) as synonyms for textile. However, there are subtle differences in these terms in specialized usage. Textile refers to any material made of interlacing fibres. A fabric is a material made through weaving, knitting, spreading, crocheting, or bonding that may be used in production of further goods (garments, etc.). Cloth may be used synonymously with fabric but is often a finished piece of fabric used for a specific purpose (e.g., table cloth)

Carpet
A CARPET is a textile floor covering typically consisting of an upper layer of pile attached to a backing. The pile was traditionally made from wool, but, since the 20th century, synthetic fibers such as polypropylene , nylon or polyester are often used, as these fibers are less expensive than wool. The pile usually consists of twisted tufts which are typically heat-treated to maintain their structure. The term "carpet" is often used interchangeably with the term "rug", although the term "carpet" can be applied to a floor covering that covers an entire house, whereas a "rug" is generally no bigger than a single room, and traditionally does not even span from one wall to another, and is typically not even attached as part of the floor

Clay
CLAY is a finely-grained natural rock or soil material that combines one or more clay minerals with traces of metal oxides and organic matter . Geologic clay deposits are mostly composed of phyllosilicate minerals containing variable amounts of water trapped in the mineral structure. Clays are plastic due to their water content and become hard, brittle and non–plastic upon drying or firing . Depending on the soil\'s content in which it is found, clay can appear in various colours from white to dull grey or brown to deep orange-red. Electron microscope photograph of smectite clay – magnification 23,500 Although many naturally occurring deposits include both silts and clay, clays are distinguished from other fine-grained soils by differences in size and mineralogy. Silts , which are fine-grained soils that do not include clay minerals, tend to have larger particle sizes than clays. There is, however, some overlap in particle size and other physical properties
