Innovations in Production

Many families in Early Western Europe recieved their incomes from farming wool or linen for spinning and weaving. However, this usually took an extensive period of time and the laborers were often paid poorly. Merchants started to make deals with the laborers that included an exchange of raw materials for working tools. This started to make things go a little faster until technology had advances.
