History of the Cardigan
The cardigan has an extensive history that dates all the way back to the 17th century. The cardigan was named after James Thomas Brudenell, the 7th Earl of Cardigan, a town in Wales, UK. However, the cardigan was not popularised across Europe until the French began using this garment as a way to keep themselves warm while sailing across the British Isles. The cardigan was also known for its ability to be able to keep its original warmth, even while splashed with a hit of near-freezing water. Traditionally, these older style cardigans were crafted using a heavy material, such as thick wool, and featured a line of buttons that could easily be closed and opened.
In the following decades, the cardigan made its way to the United States and was quickly being sported in current pop culture. One example of this stems from the popular children’s television show, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, where the host Mister Roger, would wear a classic, simple, and comfortable cardigan every day. Since then, the usage of the cardigan has increased across the United States, and globally. Men and women alike are sporting this attire as a casual, and sometimes as a formal piece of apparel.
The Marbek unisex cardigan has a variety of features: the single row of functional buttons aligned on the front of the jacket, the long-sleeves with knifed cuffs, the low shaped v-neckline, and the designs it’s offered in. The row of buttons allows for the cardigan to be worn open or closed, depending on the wears personal preference, while the long-sleeves provides more warmth for the wearer as well. The knitted cuffs featured on the cardigan gives the wearer a snugger fit that doesn’t allow for wind to easily pass through the jacket. Lastly, the designs are modern, so while the cardigan itself is a classic and timeless piece, anyone can wear it with a modern twist.
The cardigan is crafted using cotton and a blend of synthetic fibres. The cotton allow for the cardigan to be easily dyed and coloured, which provides the vibrant designs. Cotton also provides the durability and softness that is found while wearing the cardigan. The synthetic fibres give the cardigan more elasticity so that additional layers can be worn under it.
