The textile industry is an important part of our society today. The Innovation and use of textiles are seemingly unlimited.
Between 1450 and 1800, textile production was second only to agriculture in economic importance. It employed more people and produced more profit than any other manufactured product. Production and trade existed at two levels. Everywhere peasants and villagers turned locally grown wool and flax into fabric and clothing for themselves and their neighbors. The cloth they produced was of poor quality and not designed for export to distant markets. On top of this local market sat a large and lucrative luxury trade in silk, wool, linen, and (eventually) cotton fabric, the most important of which were heavy woolens. The customers for these fabrics were wealthy landowners, government and church officials, merchants, financiers, aristocrats, and master craftsmen in Europe, Asia and the Levant.
Textile industry have evolved today, now we have a lot of big fabrics factory because the modernization of machines urged companies to get bigger.
At present we have more and more intermediaries to buy fabrics from and their uses are expanding all the time. The biggest tissues’ manufacturer for example is Asia because the workforce is less expensive and modernization has pushed countries to produce fabrics in big quantities, which creates a higher return on investment.
The fabrics industry evolution was launched by industrialization. In the 20th and the 21st century the textile industry became increasingly more mechanized, which in turn made the industry more efficient, productive and cost-effective.
The mode of manufacturing of fabrics depends on the textile material being used. The modus operandi will not be the same for some cotton, silk or synthetic fabrics.
