The Cotton Road - Part 2

Rosemary Crill
Part 2 - Presentation

Rosemary Crill explores "the cotton road", sibling to the well known silk road but largely dominated by India's traffic in cotton textiles. This episode presents the second part of Rosemary's lecture in which she explores India's cotton trade with the west. Printed cotton known as "chintz" changed the very fabric of life itself - especially in the British Commonwealth.
