The history of industrial cotton spinning began in the 18th century in England. In 1781, the first steam-driven cotton spinning mill was opened in Manchester. There, at the pulsating heart of industrialisation, no less than 108 cotton spinning mills were existing in 1853. 80 % of the world's production came from Manchester, which bore the nickname "Cottonopolis". The sector began to decline in the 20th century and the last British cotton spinning mill closed its doors for good in Greater Manchester in the 1980s. However, 30 years later cotton is coming back home.
