fabric worn around the neck, near the head or around the waist for
warmth, cleanliness, fashion, or religious reasons. They can come in
a variety of different colors.
Ancient Rome is one of the many origins of the scarf, where the
garment was used to keep clean rather than warm. It was called the
sudarium, which translates from Latin to English as "sweat cloth",
and was used to wipe the sweat from the neck and face in hot
weather. They were originally worn by men around their neck or tied
to their belt. Soon women started using the scarves, which were made

In drier, dustier warm climates, or in environments where there are
many airborne contaminants, a thin headscarf, kerchief, or bandanna
is often worn over the eyes and nose and mouth to keep the hair
