Madras cloth, which is named after the region of Madras (now Chennai) in southeastern India, was originally a fabric wrapped around the heads of sailors.
The history of Indian Madras dates back over 400 years. Indian textiles, which were made by hand-spinning and carefully weaving with hand-held looms, were widely spread throughout Europe.
However, with the advancement of the Industrial Revolution in the 18th century and the advent of mass production, the techniques of Indian cotton weaving fell behind and declined.
The traditional Indian cotton fabrics that had survived only in small numbers once again gained popularity when Brooks Brothers adopted Indian Madras in 1920. Ivy Leaguers then began to love Indian Madras, and its popularity remained steadfast.
