Chintz – An Indian Fabric Banned Because Of Popularity

Chintz was an Indian fabric that was banned in Europe because of its popularity and threat to local industries.
Chintz — although it might today be largely associated with twee or cutesy armchairs and wallpaper — is, in its true form, a fabric that was not only once highly prized the world over, and helped revolutionize fashion and design, but also changed the course of history.
The history of chintz extends far beyond that. Chintz — which comes from the Hindi word chint, meaning “‘spotted’, ‘variegated’, ‘speckled’, or ‘sprayed’, as Fee writes in the book Cloth That Changed the World — originated in modern-day India and Pakistan thousands of years ago.

Bhagvad Gita & Satv-Rajas-Tamas Gun

According to Vedic literature, nature consist of 'Teen Gun' or three qualities. Just as a painter mixes colors to produce innumerable shades, so also the creator has mixed the three qualities to produce this universe with all its varieties and shades.  Bhagvad Gita describes Human nature and personalities  based on this model. One can judge himself & others based on this framework. 

Nature is said to exist in three states. Saatvik, Rajsik & Tamsik.

Saatvik quality does not produce sins but it produces Punya. Person feels happy and fulfilled in life. This state is conducive for the development of spiritual knowledge.
It is a state of action motivated by intense desires. Person is bound by intricacies of never ending  positive and negative Karma.
It is a state of inertia or action in ignorance. Person does not get even short term happiness.   
Twelve types of actions, interests, opinions etc. are described based on the three qualities of nature.
