Interesting history and facts:
a. The history of the CHOKER necklace, a necklace worn close to the neck, goes back hundreds of years. In the world’s early civilizations: the Sumer Empire in Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt, often in gold or lapis, the necklaces were thought to be protective and imbued with special powers.
b. While EMBROIDERY is practiced across the world, its origin stems from China and the Near East. Early embroidery can be traced back to Cro-Magnon days (30,000 B.C.). Archeological finds from this time period reveal fossilized remains of heavily hand-stitched and decorated clothing.
c. SEWING NEEDLES
Earliest found in Siberia (50,000 years) and South Africa (15,000 years). Made from animal bone, these needles were carefully crafted to be sharp enough to stitch together and embroider animal skins.
