Abstract: Having been brought about by the Arabs, the cotton industry in Malta was a vibrant one until its decline as a result of more potent foreign industries overshadowing the Maltese one. Vella writes in detail about the different kinds of cotton plants and how this lucrative industry kept Malta and Gozo afloat during precarious financial times.
