Presentation Transcript

-Before the Industrial Revolution, all manufacture of products like textiles was done at home and on a small scale. This was called the cottage or domestic system.

-Everyone did their part.

-Textile production: children cleaned the wool, women spun the fibers into thread and men wove the thread into cloth.

-Slow and tedious work

-Expensive products
