Recode’s Scott Horsley and Kara Swisher dive into the world of cotton fabric in this episode of Recode Decode, “Black Cotton Fabric.”
The fabric industry is in a state of flux, as it has been since the arrival of cotton in the Americas.
The cotton boom that followed the Civil War ushered in a time of enormous prosperity for the American cotton industry, fueled by cheap land and a thriving economy.
But in the years since, a string of mass plant closures have caused the cotton industry to shrink.
Now, the textile industry is struggling with its own issues, and cotton-based products are facing their own share of the problems.
Black cotton fabric is one such product.
Black cotton fabric has a rich history of innovation and development.
It has been woven into fabrics for more than a century, from the first teak to the latest leather.
Black is a distinctive color, and its origins can be traced back to the Americas and Africa, where the African slave trade brought the native African people into contact with European colonists.
Today, the United States has one of the largest cotton crop harvests in the world, with over 400 million pounds produced last year.
The United States uses the fiber to make clothing, footwear, food, textiles, and other products, and it’s woven into some of the world’s most popular fabrics.
But the cotton fabric industry has been in a constant state of transformation over the last century, as the cost of cotton and the availability of new sources of raw materials have led to an economic downturn.
To better understand how the fabric industry could look in the future, Recode co-host Kara Swishers and Scott Henson join us in an episode of Decode Decodes, “A Tale of two Bags.
Cotton and Black.”
Black cotton is a very specific type of cotton, which is woven from a variety of types of cotton.
It’s an incredibly difficult material to work with.
You can work with it, but the surface you work on will be extremely fragile.
It also has a high resistance to abrasion.
You have to be very careful when you work with black cotton, because you don’t want to get your finger and fingers and hands on the fiber.
It really doesn’t make any sense to be using black cotton.
And so, there’s a long history of textile innovations that have made black cotton fabrics very, very good for the textile world.
It is a staple material in many types of apparel and other types of textile products, including leather, fabrics for footwear, and textiles.
In this episode, we explore the history and innovation behind the fiber that makes up black cotton and explore the challenges and opportunities that it presents to textile producers.
We begin with a look at how the industry started and the ways it has evolved.
The fabric was first used in Europe in the 16th century, and then in the United Kingdom by the British Empire, where it was used for everything from cloth to paper, from curtains to bedding.
In the late 1800s, it was sold in a variety for home furnishings and was then exported to the United Sates, where textile manufacturers made the fabric into textile products.
But by the early 1900s, black cotton became an international commodity.
And as textile factories and mills closed, the industry shifted to developing new ways of making and selling the fabric, which eventually led to the development of black cotton in North America.
Recode’s Kara Swish talks to Kara Swifters about the history of black and white cotton and what it means for textile industry innovation.
