British cotton industries boomed in the late 18th century.
A series of inventions in the 18th century increased the production process.
Processes of carding, twisting, spinning, and rolling were made faster.
Richard Arkwright created the cotton mill. Now the costly new machines could be purchased, set up and maintained in the mill.
Within the mill, all the processes were brought together under one roof and management.
This allowed a more careful supervision over the production process, a watch over quality and the regulation of labour, all of which had been difficult to do when production took place in the countryside.
