chinani 's Thoughts:

transition from skins of beasts to woven cloth
development of felting

defined clothing as small rectangle cloth wrapped around waist making a sarong- the primitive version of the skirt.
Later cloth was draped over the shoulders.

ancient egypt- animal fibers were considered ‘impure’ there fore were not worn, such as wool.

greek clothing- no form. composed only of rectangular shaped cloth draped over the body without cutting or sewing the material.

‘chiton’ worn by knee length for men and ankle length for women. kept in place by pins or brooches usually worn with a cord or belt around the waist.
