Fine Fabrics - A staple of Wealth
Fine fabrics are not only used to show wealth in our time, the same was true for antiquity as well. Thus, it should not come as a surprise that many wealthy Romans liked to be handsomely dressed. But not only the fabric had to be special, but also the patterns and the colours. The selection in ancient times was in fact the nearly the same as today.

Is the herringbone pattern really authentic?
As a matter of fact it is. Many people tend to believe that ancient Roman fashion mainly consisted of white togae and other white or maybe red pieces of clothing. That's just not true. Antiquity was very colourful and people liked to wear exotic patterns. Therefore, it is more than possible that also the herringbone pattern was used in Roman fashion.
