History of spinning industry in Bangladesh. Even today, historians have not been able to determine exactly when spinning or weaving began. However, 6,000 years before the birth of Jesus Christ, man first began to weave yarn and use it to weave cloth. According to historians, the use of cotton first started in the Mediterranean and Arab countries.
However, the discovery of yarn and cloth weaving equipment on the shores of Lake Suez in 5000 BC proves that the inhabitants of that region could make yarn and weave cotton at that time.
According to historical sources, the use of cotton in India dates back to about 3500 BC. Egypt will occupy first place in the region among the Mediterranean countries. Egyptian cotton is now called the best cotton in the world.
Cotton has been used in Britain since the early 1300s. Cotton began to be used in America in the late 1800s. Cotton has been used all over the world since the beginning of yarn production from cotton mechanically. Since the word cotton originates from the Arabic word, it is believed that the Arabs were the first to cultivate cotton commercially and introduced the cotton trade to the world market as a commodity. For centuries, the Arabs have been an international cotton trading nation.
According to the historian Herodotus, the original birthplace of corpus cotton was India, the Persian Sea coast, and the Arabian Peninsula. According to Herodotus, the cultivation and use of cotton were introduced in the above areas 1500 years before the birth of Jesus Christ. But China claims it has been using cotton as a means of cotton cultivation and weaving since 2,300 years before the birth of Jesus Christ.
History of spinning industry in Bangladesh. Cotton has been cultivated in Bangladesh since ancient times, but it has never been used commercially. Because the length of the cotton fiber was very insignificant. The cloth was made by cutting the yarn by hand. The world-famous Dhaka muslin sari was first made from cotton produced in Dhaka Kapasia in the Indian subcontinent during the Mughal period. In the Arts of India, dated 323 BC, muslin is said to be the oldest of the Sullivan veils and manubanghita. This makes it easy to understand that the muslin of Dhaka is very old. At present, cotton seeds are being widely cultivated in Bangladesh by importing some cotton fiber seeds from America and the length of the fiber is quite good. It has also started to be widely used in the spinning industry of Bangladesh.
