Birmingham And The Industrial Revolution

Birmingham was one of the most significant cities in the development of the industrial revolution. How did it achieve its position of prominence in early industry.

Birmingham is located in Britain’s largest royal hunting ground, just outside the Forest of Arden. Birmingham town had a very interesting Saxon name. By dissecting the name, Birmingham, we know that during the Saxon’s times a man named Berm and his family – or “ing” – kept their home – or “ham” there.

Domesday Book had the first official mention of Birmingham. Birmingham Manor was a small place, as there were only 9 houses, may be around 50 people, other than the associates of the Lord of the Manor. The boundary of the land having the manor in it is mentioned to be having 4 hides. A hide is supposed to be approximately 120 acres of land. So, there were 480 acres, and not the whole land would be the arable land stated.

Peter de Bermingham, Lord of the Manor of Berm, was granted a charter in 1166 to hold a market every week on Thursday, and given permission to levy tolls on goods and produce sold there. The privilege of holding a fair each year for four days, starting on Holy Thursday, was secured in 1251 for the Manor of Birmingham. Such institutions flourished since Birmingham was on the River Rea at the only decent crossing in the district; therefore, it was a natural centre where track ways (no proper tracks existed) came together. Traders and craftsmen started settling in Birmingham to be close to the market. Since Birmingham was a manor, not a town, no irksome restrictions had to be observed by smiths, craftsmen, tanners, or gunsmiths in the Middle Ages. They could display and sell goods unhindered, enjoying the same privileges held by those who traveled to the increasingly flourishing town for trading. This liberty encouraged those of enterprise and ambition in the neighborhood to go to Birmingham, where they could work with no disturbances and compete with anyone. Thus, the town thrived and grew in the 14th and 15th centuries.

In Tudor times both banks of the Rea were filled with water mills and the workmen of Digbeth, Deritend and the nearby boroughs of Rea used the water wheels to turn the early machines. However, still more important is the fact that Birmingham was the only region with good supply of drinkable water, sufficient enough for the ever growing population.

The increasing number of patents granted to Birmingham tradesmen and inventors in the early eighteenth century shows the strong spirit of inquiry and initiative which was spreading throughout the town, and the great improvement of tools and processes. For instance, a certain John Taylor took out a patent for cast-iron hollow-ware in 1779. Henry Clay, one of John Baskervilles apprentices, patented papier-mache in 1772, while two brothers named Wyatt patented a machine for cutting screws, work which had hitherto been done by hand. Another townsman, named Harrison, made a steel pen for Dr. Priestley. Josiah Mason later started one of the largest factories in the world for the manufacture of pens. There were many more inventions about this time, so you will understand why Birmingham became so busy and progressive.

Emergence Of Sport Tech In Technical Textile Industry

Today sports in India have achieved a peak in terms of popularity and as a career option. Olympics, Commonwealth Games, Asian Games, SAF Games, Wimbledon and many other world sports tournaments see Indians as one of the most leading sports participants in the world.

Sports footwear includes appropriate shoes for different sports. Keeping in view the movement of feet and the type of surface on which a sport is played, the shoes uppers and soles are designed to meet the varying performance requirements.

Textile components form an integral part of sports and sporty look footwear. In terms of value, approximately 20 percent of the components used in sports shoes are textiles, while the remaining cost is contributed by non-textile components such as soles, polyurethane, foam leather on uppers, counters, eyelets etc. Shoe uppers and lining on the counter, socks below the shoe uppers are made of textiles and constitute nearly 95 percent of the total textiles used in sport shoes. Other textile components, though consumed in minor quantities, are nonwoven textiles, laces, tapes, threads, lables, elastic etc. The shoe uppers and linings used in the inner part counters and socks are made of laminated fabrics. Nonwoven fabrics are used as interlinings. The laminated fabrics for shoe uppers may comprise fabric laminated with foam, polyurethane, rubber etc. In the premium range of shoes, sandwiched meshes may be used instead of fabric-foam laminated uppers.

Three different kinds of fabrics, knitted, woven and non-woven are used for sports shoes. The fibres used for such fabrics are polyester, polyester-viscose, cotton and nylon. Sandwiched mesh also known as high-tech three dimensional fabrics Consisting of micro filaments sandwiched between two layers of meshes is also used as alternative to foam laminated fabrics. Fibres used in these fabrics wick moisture away from the skin to the outer layer of the fabric, thereby facilitating faster evaporation. However, such high performance fabrics are used only in some variants of premium range of sports shoes produced by branded companies. Polyester, polypropylene, nylon and cotton are used for Sportech. However, the predominant use is that of polyester since it is cheap. Nylon is used for the premium range of shoes. Cotton is used predominantly in canvas shoes and childrens shoes.

The Indian sports footwear industry is labour intensive and is concentrated in small and cottage industry sector. Nearly 95 percent of sports footwear is produced in the small / cottage units concentrated in and around Delhi and mere 5 percent in the organized sector.

Sports shoes are available in a wide variety at prices lower than leather footwear. These shoes are comfortable and can be worn for different purposes such as jogging, casual wear, leisure wear etc. The increasing use of sportswear as leisure wear has also been positively impacting the demand of sports shoes. As a result, the sports footwear industry has witnessed a healthy growth of around 10-15 percent per annum during the last decade and has grown to a 595 mn. Pairs of sports shoe market, valued at about Rs.5950 crore. The annual consumption of laminated fabrics by sports footwear industry is about 120 mn. Sq. mtrs and 80 percent of the same is sourced indigenously.
