Elite Women Were Also Given The Opportunity to Work With The Most Expensive Feathers and Pearl Beads

 In 1972 the newly formed government of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman who was also the head of the Awami League, enacted the Bangladesh Industrial Enterprises (Nationalization) Order, taking over privately owned textile factories and creating a state-owned enterprise (SOE) called Bangladesh Textile Mills Corporation (BTMC).

President Rahman promoted democracy and a socialist form of capitalism.
The BTMC never managed to match the pre-1971 output and in every year after the 1975–1976 fiscal year, lost money.
Until the early 1980s the state owned almost all spinning mills in Bangladesh and 85 percent the textile industry's assets (not including small businesses). 
Under the 1982 New Industrial Policy (NPI) a large number of these assets including jute mills and embroidery digitizing textile mills were privatized and returned to their original owners.
Ancient Maya women had two natural types of cotton to work with, one white and the other light brown,called cuyuscate, both of which were commonly dyed.
The preparation of cotton for spinning was very burdensome, as it had to be washed and picked clean of seeds.
However, women of the elite not only had to prepare the best clothing for their families, but they also had to be talented in weaving tapestry, brocade, embroidery, and tie-dyeing for tribute to other families and rulers.
Weavers had three different natural dyes to work with.
Women also worked with maguey.
Maguey was of major value as a cordage material used for horse gear, nets, hammocks and bags.
Mexican digitizing textile expepayasosrt Irmbard Weitlaner Johnson associates pre-Christian spiritual traditions with the presence of butterflies in Mazatec textile motifs.
"To this day the Mazatecs identify the butterfly as the soul that leaves the body. They believe that the souls of the deceased have permission to come to this world once a year on All Saints' Day and the Day of the Dead to visit their family.
This is the period when butterflies are most abundant in the area and the Mazatecs consider it a sin to kill them."
Regional motifs without specific spiritual meaning, or for which disputed interpretations exist, include a class of stepped fret known as xicalcoliuhqui, which means "twisted ornament for decorating gourds" in theNahuatl language; and the double spiral ilhuitl, whose name translates as "fiesta day."
Pre-Colonial tradition associates color with the four cardinal directions: yellow with east, red with north, blue and green with west, and white with south.
Another shared motif among the region's indigenous peoples is a rectangular ornament below the neckline of the huipil.
No specific symbolism is known, but it is a frequent theme in pre-colonialcodices and surviving historic textiles that remains in popular use.
