I am a textile enthusiast who is currently on a mission to learn more about the history of cotton production in India. I understand that India has a rich history when it comes to cotton and that it was one of the main reasons for the spice route trade. However, in my research, I couldn't find much about the origins of cotton production in India.
I would like to know where cotton was first grown in India, as I believe this would give me a better understanding of how cotton cultivation evolved in the country. Any information related to this topic, including the earliest known historical records, would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your help!
