Until the 20th century Lithuania was a traditional agricultural nation. The agricultural and farming economy was accompanied since the Middle Ages, by craftsmanship, developed both in urban and rural areas. Lithuanian cities had only partial political autonomy, and the third estate was never strong enough until the last quarter 19th century. Therefore urban industries had some peculiarities. First, the medieval structure of craft guilds existed in Lithuania up to the end of the 19th century. In addition third estate had to compete with strong rivals in manufacturing: the Catholic Church and the nobility, who ran a variety of works as well. During the 15th and 16th a the Grand Dukes of Lithuania, bishops, lords and state dignitaries launched export-orientated forestry and wood industries, and began to develop almost all the branches of industry that were necessary for domestic, local or even regional needs. These Industries were developed in small private towns, established and ruled by the nobility, or at la manors that had their own small industries such as fulleries, spinneries, flax and felting mills, potteries, breweries and distilleries, leather industries (tanneries, saddler wear industries), even ironworks, and others that had to satisfy all the needs of and peasantry life. In the 16th-17th centuries large manufactories such as linen and silk-weaving mills, paper mills, glass, wood, brick and metal works were established at the latifundia of the Lithuanian aristocracy. For long periods cities represented a specific mixture of urban and rural life styles. For these reasons Lithuania has a dense I of towns that used to have their own local industry for a long while.
