Syftet med denna avhandling är att studera den sydhalländska stickningsindustrins framväxt, utveckling och organisation under tidigmodern tid. Denna protoindustriella verksamhet bedrevs i godsbygd i huvudsak på förlagsbasis. Tidigt spelade Wallens gods i Våxtorps socken en aktiv roll i verksamheten. Under 1700-talets senare hälft organiserades stickningsindustrin av förläggare från staden Laholm, medan under 1800-talet övertogs verksamheten alltmer av förläggare på landsbygden. Vilken omfattning fick stickningsindustrin? Hur såg dess kommersiella nätverk ut? Hur var den organiserad och hur förändrades organisationen över tid? Hur värderades kvinnornas arbete? Vem efterfrågade de stickade varorna?... (More)

Vilken omfattning fick stickningsindustrin? Hur såg dess kommersiella nätverk ut? Hur var den organiserad och hur förändrades organisationen över tid? Hur värderades kvinnornas arbete? Vem efterfrågade de stickade varorna? Hur distribuerades varorna? Det är några av de frågor som avhandlingen försöker besvara. Under 1700-talets senare hälft var stickningsindustrins framgångar direkt kopplat till statsmaktens behov av soldatstrumpor till militären i samband med krigs- och orostider. Under 1800-talet gick tillverkningen av stickade yllevaror däremot i huvudsak till den civila marknaden. Den teoretiska utgångspunkten har varit de teorier om protoindustrialisering som har utvecklats av Mendels m.fl., men även de revideringar av element i teorin som senare forskare genomfört. (Less)
Abstract
The aim of this dissertation has been to examine the growth, development, and organisation of the knitting industry in southern Halland during early modern times. This proto-industrial enterprise was conducted primarily via a putting-out system in the goods districts. Wallen's estate in Våxtorp parish played an active role in the enterprise already from an early stage. During the latter half of the eighteenth century, putting-out entrepreneurs from Laholm organised the knitting industry, while during the nineteenth century rural putting-out entrepreneurs increasingly took over the enterprise.

The aim of this dissertation has been to examine the growth, development, and organisation of the knitting industry in southern Halland during early modern times. This proto-industrial enterprise was conducted primarily via a putting-out system in the goods districts. Wallen's estate in Våxtorp parish played an active role in the enterprise already from an early stage. During the latter half of the eighteenth century, putting-out entrepreneurs from Laholm organised the knitting industry, while during the nineteenth century rural putting-out entrepreneurs increasingly took over the enterprise. What scope did the knitting industry have? What did their commercial network look like? How was the knitting industry organised and how did its organisation change over time? Who requested knitted goods? How were the goods distributed? In this dissertation, I attempt to address these and other questions. During the latter half of the eighteenth century, the success of the knitting industry was directly connected to the state's need for stockings for the military during times of war and unrest. However, during the nineteenth century knitted wool garments went chiefly to the civilian market. My theoretical point of departure has been the theories of proto-industrialisation developed by Mendel and others, as well as modifications of elements in the theories by more recent scholars. (Less)
