Manchester sees rebirth of cotton and textile industry

Manchester and the surrounding area were built on the success of spinning and sewing during the first industrial revolution, until an interesting nickname called Cottonopolis.

But then production began to slow down, the emergence of Manchester Ship Canal and imports began to be done. Now after 40 years, cotton is once again back on the production line.

Through an investment of £ 6 million, UK cotton textile producers have begun demand for imported cotton from Southern California and in Manchester, the production of yarns used throughout the region in the supply chain will be reopened.

Director of English Fine Cottons Tracy Hawkins says that it has really come back involving weavers, finisher to dye to jointly form the supply chain again. There is a great desire to provide quality and excellent materials produced from the UK and are made here.

The company decided to follow the supply chain from bale to rail, to be a challenge in the garment business. At the top of the industry, an estimated eight billion yards of fabric was produced in 1912.
