just a few simple observations.

Cotton is best grown in zones 8-10.  that covers all of Iberia and Gaul,
except the Alps and the Pierrines<sp>.  All of Italy, much of Masodonia,
 coastal terkey, and Armenia, even constantanople.  and everything south
of the black sea, with the exception of the mountians of Modern Turkey.
and all of north Africa.  it should even be able to be grown, albeit
limitedly in England.

Seems unlikely that if something can grow here that we would pay extra to
have it shipped from the other side of the world.  Just my opinion.  And
remember 400 years ago thier was a time when the avarage tempature was
higher, grapes grew in scotland, and english wines were the bane of the

  hmmm.. On the Flip side for cotton being a "Luxury" Item or
  "Common" Item......... like with Pearls for the Church and
  Royalty. TO be givcen as gifts because of their value in
  society... ( the Ultimate I have money Bling) .. Could Cotton not
  be treated the same way???? if it was expensive why not embroider a
  napkin for a Beloved or Really close friend?...or as part of the
  Dowry.... etc

  ... just bringing up ideas.... I really do not know about this
  subject and am interested in learning more....

  does anyone really know how well cotton holds up over 100's of
  years???? If badly or it does not... then could that also be a
  factor in the is Cotton period debate????? If It hols up well then
  what??? I am talking about Period Cotton which I guess wahs
  manufactures a little different then today???

  If It was common that would also explain the surprise Again. I
  do not know.. much about this at all. However I can see both
  points.. and I am most definately going to look into that book!!!!

  You are the First person who has offered another view on cotton!
  thank you... It getting me thinking.. maybe Cotton was available
  in italy and widely used Since "Italy" had many trade ports! how
  do we not know there was a import/export tax or "Duty" of somekind
  that the rest of europe was unwilling/unable to pay.....Or Someone
  Tring to Make a Quick buck along the Line....

  I have a friend who sends any material, clothing , books, Dance
  Belts she wants to her aunts in Detroit because she claims she has
  been "stung" with a Duty tax to have these items shipped here to
  Windsor. ... for the Item coming into Canada.... Even small Items
  like embriudery floss she ordered... . She insists they can charge
  whatever they want at the border for Duty and at times has paid
  twice what she originally paid for the Item including
  shipping?????..... I have heard many other "Horror" stories like
  that as well.. so could that have been a factor???? Maybe wabbit..
  Maybe.... Who knows????

  Okay now you have me tinking about all kinds of stuff.... Hubby
  says "Thanks a lot"... LOL...... I think its cause he smelled
  something Burning... LOL

  Now Hmmmmmm Off to see If I can find that book.......

  One who is confused about Cotton in Period.....
