More on Scarves

Hi,

Let’s continue talking about scarves. I am still surprised that men were the first to wear scarves and today, men are still wearing scarves. The majority of the men wear scarves in the winter and they wear them inside their coats or jackets.  Men seem to choose the color of their scarves to match their outer wear.

In my opinion, when men wear scarves, it gives them a very distinguished and professional look. They tend to be well-dressed men.

What do you think?

Please feel free to ask questions about anything. If I don’t know the answer I will find someone that will.

 

A Brief History of Scarves

Since I love scarves and have them on my website, ETSY, and Pinterest, I decide that it may be fun to get the history of a scarves. So I went to Wikipedia to see what I could find.

“Ancient Rome is one of the first origins of the scarf, where it was not used to keep warm; but to keep clean.” Can you imagine that a scarf was made to keep someone clean?

It goes on to say why. “It was called the sudarium, which translates from Latin to English as “sweat cloth”, and was used to wipe the sweat from the neck and face in hot weather. They were originally worn by men around their neck or tied to their belt.

Did you know that men were the first to wear a scarf? I did not know this. Men were the first to wear a scarf.

Here is the last of the information about the scarves that I would like to share.

“Soon women started using scarves, which were made of cloth and not made of wool, Pashmina, or silk, and ever since the scarf has been fashionable among women.”

This article states that the scarves worn by women were NOT made by wool, Pashmina (refers to type of fine cashmere wool and the textiles made from it and was first invented in India), or silk. (Wikipedia)

The fashionable scarves today are made from these types of cloth and variety of other materials and blends of cloth.

Here is just a little bit of History about scarves.

I hope you enjoyed it! If you want to look at any of the scarves click here!
