The History Of Clothes
Clothing are items usually worn around the torso. In most cases, clothing is composed of textiles or fabrics, but over the years it has also come to include clothing made from synthetic materials and even natural organic products such as coconut oil and naturally derived raw hides found in the forest, put together by the people who create the clothing. The clothing we wear today is often no different from the clothing of ancient times, except for the fact that clothing of yesteryear was a lot heavier than clothing of today. People were quite uncomfortable in those days because their bodies did not have the same composition as theirs does today, and clothing then had to be much more delicate so that they could last through the hard weather of those days. Men’s clothing used to be much heavier and bulkier than women’s clothing.
The only exceptions to this rule were women who wore skirts that were designed to show off their legs, so that their garments didn’t get caught up in their clothes, creating a ugly picture. Textile clothing was very functional for these early textile societies. It could help people regulate their body temperature, and was very comfortable to wear. Unlike the heavy and bulkier fashions of later days, textile clothing usually had little decorative embroidery and detailing, since its main function was to keep the body cool.
As technology advanced, clothing became lighter, and cloth was no longer required to serve the purpose of keeping people warm. Silk clothing was used to be reserved for the upper classes in those textile societies, but in modern times, common people own and wear clothing of various kinds, depending on what they need for their day-to-day activities. Most clothing these days is machine made, from synthetic fabrics made for comfort and ease of movement, to natural fibers and natural materials that provide a cool and lightweight barrier against the elements when they are wearing protective and breathable clothes.
