Cotton- luxury of old world

Cotton grows wild in many places on the earth, but it has been known about, cultivated and put to use by people of many lands for centuries. It was considered to be a luxury in the older times because of its non availability and lack of mass production techniques.

Archaeologists have found cotton cloth fragments in the Indus Valley dating about 3000 B.C. It was grown in western countries in the early 1500’s. It was mainly used by the rich and aristocratic people as a symbol of royalty. The most expensive, the finest and the colorful cotton cloth were extremely important merchandise imported from the Netherlands, England and Germany during medieval times. Nobility’s clothing and that belonging to wealthy merchants became more elaborate with time. For example, aristocratic men wore hose and a jacket. Medieval clothing for wealthy males also often included a tunic with a fur coat. Sleeve designs for wealthy males were also more elaborate than for the working classes when it came to medieval clothing. The aristocratic women’s medieval clothing later in the period included flowing gowns and incredible headwear. For those who could afford it, import materials such as silks were used in the making of these gowns. Preparing the fabrics and the threads was a time-consuming and valuable craft in older times. But, industrial revolution and the invention of the cotton gin in the U.S. paved the way for the important place cotton holds in the world today and made it a very popular choice.
