When Did The Textile Industry Start?
One of the main industries that benefited from the Industrial Revolution was the textile industry. The textile industry was based on the development of cloth and clothing. Before the start of the Industrial Revolution, which began in the 1700s, the production of goods was done on a very small scale. Historians refer to this method of production as the ‘cottage industry’. Simply put, the cottage industry refers to a period of time in which goods for sale were produced on a very small scale, usually in a home.
People manufactured goods in this scheme, such as wool, in their homes or on their own farms, and then sold it to local communities, as long-distance transport was uncommon. This production method was slow and inefficient and was struggling to keep up with the increasing demand generated by the increased population.
