iacst-2022

The Colonial period witnessed the coming up of various new technologies. It saw a dynamic shift in raw material demand. The student will learn about all these in this chapter. The following points are a brief overview of the chapter:

  • Around 1750, before the British conquered Bengal, India was by far the world's largest cotton textiles producer.
  • We get to see documents describing the quality of the products sold by the Indian merchants. For example, Jamdani was a fine muslin. This fabric had decorative motifs woven on them on the loom. The colour typically used to be grey and white. Usually, to obtain the result, a mixture of cotton and gold thread was used. The most prominent centres of jamdani weaving were Dacca in Bengal and Lucknow in the United Provinces.
  • As European trade expanded, trading settlements were established at various ports. The Dutch settlements in Cochin came up in the seventeenth century.
  • Competition with Indian textiles instigated a search for technological innovation in England.
  • The development of cotton industries in Britain led to devastating effects on India's textile producers in several ways./li>
  • The first cotton mill that was set up in India was a spinning mill in Bombay. It was set up in 1854.
  • To meet the war requirements, TISCO was forced to expand its capacity and extend its factory size.
