Three problems faces by Indian weavers in 1850s:

  • the British government imposed heavy duties on Indian cloth exported to Britain and removed import duties on British clothes coming into India. The cotton weavers in India thus faced two problems at the same time: their export market collapsed, and the local market shrank in the country due to import by Manchester industries.
  • By 1860s, another problem was that weavers could not get sufficient supply of raw cotton of good quality. During the American Civil War, as America’s Cotton export to Britain reduced, Britain started importing cotton from India in large quantities.
  • Another problem faced by weavers was that at this time in India factories had begun to be established and began to sell machine made goods. Thus, it was difficult for weavers to survive.
