Best Answer

The industrial revolution began in the mid-to-late 18th century starting in Western Europe, namely England. Inventions such as the flying shuttle, water frame and power loom made mass production of textiles possible and became the first step toward the industrial revolution.

The need for this arose when production of textiles was considered a household task that was long and tedious, and the industrial revolution made such tasks much easier and opened up opportunities for employment among the middle class.
