DID YOU KNOW?
One of the first origins of the scarf is in Ancient Rome, where it was used to keep clean rather than warm. 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.
Soon women started using the scarves, which were made of cloth and not made of wool, pashmina, or silk, and ever since the scarf has been fashionable among women. And, by the middle of the 20th century scarves became one of the most essential and versatile clothing accessories for both men and women.
