If we go to the history of clothing then it was some 100,000 years ago that people started wearing clothes. Before this, more primitive clothing was used. Humans used to wear wild animal skins and leaves to cover their bodies. But after that, as humans became more civilized fabric clothes were used. And soon textile became an industry. Over the years, the whole textile industry has undergone a huge change and it has been completely revolutionized. It was started by the handwoven clothes, then, occurred the invention of the sewing machine. Even the first machine ever created Spinning Jenny was used in the textile industry. All of this resulted in a kick-off of the industry.
The textile industry saw the revolution in Great Britain during the years of 1700. In 1733, the Flying Shuttle was invented to reduce the labor work and then came the invention of Power Loom in 1785 by Edmund Cartwright which completely mechanized the weaving or textile industry. Earlier, the clothes were a necessity. The human needed food, shelter, and clothing for its very existence but now the concept of clothes has changed significantly. For most people, it is no need but a symbol of modernization and status. As the world is growing upwards in terms of developing the standard of living has grown ever higher.
