Origin of woven shirts & shorts
Textiles derive from the Latin word ‘texere’ meaning ‘to weave’ which has come from a long line Latin history. The first use of textiles can be dated back 100,000 years in Egypt! The development of linen, mattresses, and even baskets were all being created by similar textiles. The natural and reusable fabrics of flax, silk, cotton, and wool have been used for thousands of years to produce clothing in a sustainable way.
Now when easing into the modern world, the Caribbean Island of Bermuda came to popularize shorts which led to the idea of a shirt and short set! Moving to Great Britain in the 20th century, lots of soldiers in the Royal military soon began to migrate to a local tea shop owned by a native Bermudian Nathanial Coxon, from the sudden heat Coxon had the idea to cut pants into shorts for a finalized look which pleased his employees. The trend quickly followed in different countries where the cool bright colors and trendy styles brought life to even work clothing! This idea also furthered rights for women, who were fined for wearing shorts that were considered “too short,” but after the new wave of wearing knee length shorts women were also able to hop on the trend.

Satin is a very trendy material used to create dresses, tops, and skirts, which have stayed relevant these past few years. Silk has great durability, shine, and history to make it popular in high-end couture design. Silk is used for gowns and dresses, skirts, and even tops. Denim is a classic piece that has always been a movement for fashion, think denim jackets, denim jeans, or even denim bags to have a very casual and cool look.

No matter the price of your clothing, it’s always advisable to care for them in the best way possible to ensure a long-lasting article of clothing. To do so one must understand what fabric it is and follow washing and drying instructions as they appear. Detergents and fabric softeners are sometimes harsh as well, so be careful with washing clothes. Make sure to read all instructions on cleaning products before using them! We want to preserve our Brooklyn Cloth merch for as long as we can!
For more delicate clothing like satin, you’ll want to go for a light wash cycle, lower the speed, and use cool or cold water. For a woven material, a great suggestion would be hand washing to ensure the fibers and colors stay intact and vibrant even years after purchase. Now if it’s an item that uses a denim material like a jacket or jeans, it’s best to wash on a light cycle with cool water and to hang dry or dry on low heat to avoid shrinking and fading.
