Jikoshoukai: The Introduction

People have been sewing for a very long time.

20,000 years ago, during the Ice Age, someone decided that punching a hole through needles and running threads through them seemed like a good way to sew.

They were right.

Archeologists have uncovered needles made of bone and concluded that early humans used them to sew furs and skins. But bone needles required, well, bones. There had to be a better material to utilize.

Fast forward to the year circa 100 B.C. Parts of Northern Europe began to use iron needles. These were sturdier than any previous forms of needles used (bronze was used to make needles around 3,000 B.C., and these had been in use until iron replaced them).

Today, you have sewing needles made from materials such as carbon steel (for that extra durability) and 18K gold (for corrosion resistance and for those who do not mind splurging a little on tools).

It is not just the tools of sewing that have evolved over the years. Even the reason behind the art of sewing has shifted perspective. At one point in time, it was a craft used for necessity. People could not afford to risk sacrificing animals they used as food to mend a torn shirt. These days, sewing has turned into a hobby. It has become a way for people to enjoy an art that requires a considerable amount of skill. It has even become a way to improve your mood and help you relax.

Even technology has helped
