Scarves

 

By Mariah Killian

 

Scarves have been a part of many ordinary lives for many centuries. One of the earliest time periods that scarves trace back to is 10 A.D. Romans during this time wore kerchief (Scarves) around their waist or neck. Skipping forward in time a bit we look at the 1800’s when scarves had become a big part of fashion. Beethoven himself wore scarves to win over the affections of a charming young woman.

Scarves have been a part of many cultures for a long time. From Islamic headscarves, to military ranking scarves, to even just fashionable wearing scarves. Throughout the span of time the appearance of scarves have been remarkably unnoted. This is perhaps because they are merely a piece of cloth or because fashion even back in time seemed to be moving forward.
