BOU

tsumu(gu)

meaning: spin [yarn]

紡織 == boushoku == (noun) spinning and weaving
紡績工場 == bousekikoujou == (noun) spinning mill, cotton mill




Left radical is 'thread' (糸). Right radical is 'side' (方), used here phonetically to express 'twist together'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Spin threads on the side.'
