Dress and adornment has been part of the material culture of humanity for thousands of years. The art of sewing pieces of diverse materials together to cover and adorn the body has been intrinsically tied to the development of cultural rituals and traditions. The aesthetics of dress traditions has been refined, enlarged and incorporated by the diverse cultural groups as markers of their specific traditions and contributions.
