Ancient Rome is one of the first origins of the scarf. It was used as a means to keep clean rather than keep warm. Originally worn by men around their neck or tied to their belt, women started using the scarves which they made from cloth. In later times scarves were worn by soldiers of all ranks. Officers wore scarves that were made of silk whilst the other ranks were issued with a basic cotton scarf. These men's scarves were sometimes referred to as cravats. By the 19th century scarves became a fashion accessory. By the 20th century scarves became one of the most essential and versatile clothing accessoriey for both men and women. The scarf has often led fashion trends and today has subsequently become a mainstream fashion item. Hope you like our selection of hand knitted scarves below!
