Summary

Beginning in the 1820s, textile mills sprung up in towns throughout New England. During the 19th century, these factories manufactured billions of yards of fabric for the mass market, creating roller-printed cottons using complex technical processes. Colorful cotton prints, like those made by Cocheco Manufacturing Company, became affordable to almost everyone. These appealing fabrics had a profound influence on clothing and furnishing styles.
