“Headbands have taken many shapes and forms over the ages. From the laurel wreaths of Ancient Greece to the feathered headbands of the Roaring Twenties to the sporty sweatbands that became an athletic staple in the 70s, the headband has endured for over two centuries, and it’s shape and function have evolved right along with us.” – info from Sheep & Stitch.

The origin of hats and headcoverings is, as with so many other things, lost to the mists of time. The earliest hat known to archaeologists and historians was found on the head of Ötzi, the Ice Man, who died approximately 5600 years ago, and it was hardly a new invention even then. Hats have been invented and reinvented for as long as people have needed to display status or protect themselves from the elements. The first people to wear hats probably weren’t even Homo sapiens – think about that!
Every time you don a cap or a cloche, a bonnet or a beret, a tuque or a turban, fedora or a fez, a kufi, or a kippah, or a keffiyah… You are engaging in an age-old display of fashion and culture that is universal across all of humanity.
