History of Clothing Material
- In ancient times, people used big leaves of trees, barks of trees, animal skin etc to cover their body.
- When man began to settle down in communities, he began to tie together twigs, grass, leaves, animal skin/fur etc into mats and clothes. They simply draped these fabric around their body because they didn't know stitching.
- Later, when needle was invented, people started stitching these fabric into different shapes to suit their body and thus clothes evolved.
- Now, as we know the we have a variety of clothing choices for both men and women. They are very varied in choices, colours, design etc. Infact, we have moved from simple clothing to 'fashionable' clothing.
