An indistinct textile impression has been found
South Asia is best placed to lure these businesses with its lower wages and expanding young population, even though recent industrial disasters have raised questions about safety and the conditions of workers in these countries.
The industry employs about 4.7 million workers in the formal sector, and several million more informally, making up about 40 percent of the region's manufacturing employment.
Its ability to lure unskilled and semi-skilled women is particularly important, as South Asia has one of the lowest female labor force participation rates in the world of about 32 percent, compared with East Asia's 62 percent, the report said.
There are some indications that weaving was already known in the Palaeolithic. An indistinct textile impression has been found at Pavlov,Moravia. 
Neolithic textiles were found inpile dwellings excavations in Switzerland and at El Fayum, Egypt at a site which dates to about 5000 BC.
The key British industry at the beginning of the 18th century was the production of textiles made with wool from the large sheep-farming areas in the Midlands and across the country (created as a result of land-clearance and enclosure).
This was a labor-intensive activity providing employment throughout Britain, with major centres being the West Country; Norwich and environs; and the West Riding of Yorkshire.
The export trade in woolen goods accounted for more than a quarter of British exports during most of the 18th century, doubling between 1701 and 1770. 
Exports of the cotton industry – centered in Lancashire – had grown tenfold during this time, but still accounted for only a tenth of the value of the woolen trade.
Before the 17th century, the manufacture of goods was performed on a limited scale by individual workers.
This was usually on their own premises (such as weavers' cottages) – and goods were transported around the country. 
Clothiers visited the village with their trains of pack-horses.
Some of the cloth was made into clothes for people living in the same area, and a large amount of cloth was exported. 
Rivers navigations were constructed, and some contour-following canals. In the early 18th century, artisans were inventing ways to become more productive. 
Silk, wool, fustian, and linen were being eclipsed by cotton, which was becoming the most important textile.
This set the foundations for the changes.
The woven fabric portion of the textile industry grew out of the industrial revolution in the 18th Century as mass production of yarn and cloth became a mainstream industry.
In 1734 in Bury, Lancashire, John Kay invented the flying shuttle — one of the first of a series of inventions associated with the cotton woven fabricindustry.
The flying shuttle increased the width of cotton cloth and speed of production of a single weaver at a loom.
Resistance by workers to the perceived threat to jobs delayed the widespread introduction of this technology, even though the higher rate of production generated an increased demand for spun cotton.
