Book a guided tour Cottage industry was a form of business that developed in Sjuhäradsbygden during the latter part of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century. The business operator was usually a wealthy farmer or merchant who could buy large quantities of wool / cotton or yarn.
The material was delivered for spinning and weaving to women on farms in the surrounding area. The weavers were then paid for each woven fabric. The business operator often made tidy profits selling to wholesaler sold to wholesalers and travelling salesmen / peddlers.
