A textile dye is made by applying chemicals and heat to cotton fibers.
It is used to create decorative patterns, like lace, on clothes, or to produce clothes in other ways.
In some cases, the dye can be used as a base to make other products like jewellery.
The textile industry is in turmoil, but it has not suffered much.
While cotton exports have declined since 2015, textile manufacturers are growing.
Some analysts say that could be due to a better understanding of how the textile industry works and to improved technological advances.
It has been an ongoing debate whether the cotton industry has reached a tipping point.
The trade is largely based on global demand, with the majority of exports to the US being from China.
There are also concerns about China’s use of the textile as a tool to control its vast territory and the possibility of retaliation.
While there is no sign of the cotton dye industry tipping over into a self-destructive spiral, the industry has seen an increase in its production, particularly for the garment industry.
It could be that as prices of cotton products fall, the need to produce the product becomes less urgent.
However, it could also be that the dyeing process has become so automated that it has become less important.
That could have consequences for the industry.
According to the International Trade Centre (ITC), China’s textile exports fell by more than 50% in the second half of 2016 to US$3.6 billion, while it exported less than 1% of global cotton output.
That is down from 2.7% in 2014, according to ITC data.
In contrast, India’s textile industry grew by 22% in 2016 to $2.2 billion, compared with a 12% increase in China.
While China’s cotton exports declined by 24% in that same period to $5.4 billion, India exported more than twice as much.
The ITC has also predicted that cotton prices could fall by 40% in 2017, compared to what it expects.
In 2016, the cost of a kilogram of cotton was US$2.15, according the ITC.
In the US, cotton has been a key export target for the Trump administration.
The textile industry has also been hit by the rise of China.
The country has become increasingly reliant on its export of clothing and apparel to the United States, and it is not expected to return to its pre-Trump days of low tariffs and relatively low subsidies for the textile sector.
But textile manufacturers have said that China’s export policies have been bad for the US economy.
As the US exports more to China, it has lost its competitiveness.
It has also led to increased competition among foreign producers, who have moved to lower-cost countries to undercut US competitors.
According the ITM, in 2016, China accounted for about 20% of the world’s cotton output, and the US accounted for 15%.
It has a 10% share of the global cotton market, and imports from China accounted to a fifth of the country’s exports in 2016.
The ITC said that the country is currently facing a “stranded” textile industry.
The global demand for cotton is expected to rise, as the world becomes more urban and the demand for garments is expected, said Steve Fainaru, a textile analyst at ITC, in an interview.
But China’s trade policies are not the only issue that could affect the textile economy.
The ITC has warned that if the Chinese government fails to control the countrys textile industry in a timely fashion, it risks becoming a net importer of cotton.
