Weavers have to compete with the foreign imported machines. Foreign cotton products were cheaper and export rates were decreased. In Detail: The increased prices of raw cotton: The high price of raw materials hits the cost of manufacturing which results in the high cost of finished products. Competition with the cheaper foreign cotton products and imported machines: The machines were the key issues for the cotton weavers as machines replaced the costly handmade goods with cheaper ones. Exports rate decreased: People replaced them with cheaper machine-made goods because of the increased cost of handmade cotton products and thus their exports decreased. The local market also shrunk. 2 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
