For centuries, silkweaving was one of London’s biggest industries, employing thousands in the East End. Through the 18th century, the silkweavers fought to defend their wages & conditions: their tactics included strikes, riots, sabotage and more. In some ways the issues they faced, and the methods they used, anticpate those of the later Luddite movement; but with crucial differences.
