History of the tie

History

The earliest historical listing of neck ties is in Ancient Egypt.

The Egyptians tied a rectangular piece of cloth which hung down from their shoulders. This cloth became a very important piece of dress wear because it showed their social status.

Emperor Shi Huang Ti of the Qin dynasty is buried in China surrounded by statues. These statues bear a piece of cloth around their necks.

Neck ties became popular in Europe around the 17th century with the Croatian soldiers.
