Natural fabrics history trekking through history

People used to make clothes out of plant and animal fibers long time ago. There were a great number of developments and improvements made during natural fabrics history. Since the day synthetic fibers were introduced into the needle world, a plethora of fiber weaving technologies has been developed. Since then few important improvements have been made and the adding of the latest computer technologies is one of them.
Natural fabrics history started over 3000 years ago when people made clothes from different sorts of fiber. Prehistoric men used animal fells and animal fibers as clothes but then they learned how to grow different plants and make fibers using them. These first vegetable fibers that they used, like linen, were pretty simple and easy to cultivate. Soon they learned to work with other plants suitable for making fabrics. Many years had passed before people began using animal fur fibers in fabrics and, of course, the most widely used material was wool (and still wool is a very popular and widely used material in fabric production). The methods employed at that time were pretty simple. But during the long natural fabrics history different methods and techniques of fabrics weaving were developed. Today, you can see the entire natural fabrics history showcased in various museums. Methods of weaving, different materials that have ever been used in fabrics making and all sorts of machines that were invented not so long ago (in fact, machinery is just a small part of natural fabrics history that started at the time of industrial revolution) and that has become a significant part of natural fabrics production – all of them are available for curious public. Although natural fabrics history is well known today, it is still uncertain where most of the fabrics weaving techniques came from. Some historians believe that most of the fabrics making methods were developed in Asia because fabrics are mentioned to be used there in 800 AD or even earlier. These rare examples of natural fabrics history are very precious and not only for the scientists. There are many devoted collectors, who are ready to pay a fortune to lay a hand on a masterpiece. Among the most-wanted examples of ancient fabrics weaving techniques are both rugs, coverings and shirts that are pretty simple and luxury clothes that were custom made for eastern caliphs and western kings. And only at the end of the 19th century science produced a wonderful alternative to natural fibers. Lots of different synthetic fibers were discovered. Since then, the materials have been significantly improved and the world has seen new sorts of materials appearing. These days it is really hard to imagine our life without these synthetic materials but natural fibers are still in wide use retaining their privilege. Although synthetic fibers can boast some advantages, there are certain qualities of natural fibers that can not be provided by synthetics. Fabrics weavers often combine different natural fibers with synthetics, a way to blend the strong points of both synthetic and natural fibers in one fabric. And even though sometimes it is much harder to take care of natural fabrics, most people prefer to have clothes made of natural fibers instead of synthetics. Today working with natural fabrics is also a wonderful hobby. You can try some weaving technique at your home or use the so-called "batik" method coloring with ready made fabrics. All this is easy and exciting. On the internet you can find a great number of web sites on that subject.
