Glasgow was famous for its Turkey Red cloth, though none of the materials originated there. The dye and raw cotton came from warmer climates in the Middle East and the Americas. Scottish Manufacturers imported these materials.
In their factor they transformed them into bright, sttractice cloths. They then loaded bundles of cloth onto ships and exported them to India and oter Asian countries.
