India history and geography
Wool refers to a textile that was actively produced and exported in ancient India.—By the time trade with the Roman Empire reached its peak, India was a major exporter of textiles (e.g., Wool), specially cotton and silk. The Vedas refer to various types of garments as well as fabrics such as wool (avi, śāmulya) or silk (tarpya), also to weaving and looms. India exported cotton to China, silk to Indonesia and all the way to the Far East.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
