"Spinning" in the word "textile", the word is from the side. “糸” means “wire” and “方” means “方国”. “糸” and “方” are combined to mean “the yarn of national unified acquisition and distribution”. The word "woven" is traditionally from the hustle and bustle. "戠" refers to the performance of the military array, which refers to the pattern of similar group gymnastics performance. The combination of "糸" and "戠" means "adding a colored silk to form a pattern during the spinning process".

Textiles are roughly divided into two processes: spinning and weaving. The origin of Chinese textiles has been passed down from the sericulture of silkworms. The archaeology found bone needles on the archaeological sites of the cavemen of the Paleolithic Age. Origin, to the Neolithic Age, invented the spinning wheel, making the wire more convenient. In the Western Zhou Dynasty, the original textile machine appeared: spinning wheel, rolling car, the jacquard machine was invented during the Han Dynasty, and the Song Dynasty was written by the Ming Dynasty Song Yingxing. Technology is incorporated into it.

China's most famous textiles are silk. The trade of silk has promoted the cultural exchanges and traffic development between the East and the West, and indirectly influenced the commercial and military affairs of the West.

In the early stage of the British Industrial Revolution, there was a factory with meticulous division of labor. However, the cotton yarn produced by 6-8 spinning companies could only supply one weaver woven cotton cloth, causing the so-called “staple shortage”. In 1765, a British weaver named James Hargreaves invented a new type of spinning machine. He named the machine with his daughter's name, the famous Jenny spinning machine. The improvement and invention of the new spinning machine led to the development of the British textile industry, which indirectly affected the future of the Indian Gandhi uncooperative movement.
