The textile production in Motya is well attested in various areas of the island throughout the life of the settlement. The research carried out as part of PRIN PeMSea project, part of a larger study conducted within my PhD, funded by Sapienza University of Rome, on textile production in the Phoenician and Punic area in the western Mediterranean, has brought important new data of this activity in Motya.
