In an old valley in Pakistan, cotton was being grown, spun, and woven into cloth 3,000 years before Christ. About the same time, people in Egyptwere making and wearing cotton clothes. Arab merchants brought cotton cloth to Europe about 800 AD. When Columbusfirst discovered America in 1492, he found cotton growing in the Bahamas. By 1500, cotton was known generally throughout the world.
