Before the Factory

Manufacturing has long been a traditional activity in Catalonia. Wool, linen and hemp have all been used as basic textile products since ancient times. Together with the guilds in the towns and cities, a widespread rural cottage industry sprang up during the 18th century in the hinterland of the Catalonia, in places such as Osona; this economic structure was controlled by the wool factors and their dealers.
