Title: British Cloth Boycott


1
British Cloth Boycott
  • Tim Lee
  • Daniel Kim
  • Jay Kim
  • Jason Kim

2
Before Imperialism India
  • Indians used to buy and make clothing
    manufactured in their own country.
  • The cloth was called Khadi, and it was a homemade
    Indian cloth.

3
Britain Takes Over Indias Clothing Market
  • As the British imperialized India, Indias cotton
    was exported to the British.
  • After the British made clothing using Indian
    cotton, they exported it back to India.
  • This is how India got dependent on British cloth.

4
Monopoly
  • Since the British dominated the cloth industry,
    India had no choice but to buy British cloth.
  • Indians didnt get to make decisions very much.
    (Where else would they get their cloth?)

5
One Solution British Cloth Boycott
  • This was part of the Civil Disobedience.
  • Mahatma Gandhi started a fight against the
    British, through boycotting British clothing.
  • Supporters of Gandhi began to wear homemade
    clothing.

6
How?
  • Where else would you get your clothes, when you
    had no where to buy them?
  • You make your OWN.
  • Remember, India did make their own cloth before
    getting imperialized.

7
  • Gandhi suggested that boycotters should spin
    their own cotton to make clothes, for at least an
    hour a day.

8
What he did
  • Banned Western clothing
  • By 1921 Gandhi simplified his robe/dress to
    totally white. Simple.
  • Promoted "Swardeshi" which is making home grown
    products.

9
  • The Gandhi supporters started burning British
    clothing. This was not very favored by Gandhi
    since he was a non-violent person.
  • Even in the congress or nationalist meetings,
    Gandhi spun clothes, and the sound of spinning
    could be heard in the meeting.
  • Until his death, he spun 200 yards of cotton each
    day.

10
Effects
  • This weakened the economy of Britain since India
    was Britains one of the biggest market.
  • There were many causes for Indias independence,
    but the boycotting was one of the causes.
