New Delhi: Polka Dots, one of the most popular patterns in the clothing, has been with us since ages. No one can deny the fact that this pattern has been reused in most of the fashion staples and we still aren’t bored of it.
Polka dot pattern trends more when summers and spring arrive. They stay in trend for almost two seasons but have you ever thought how this pattern came to be?
After the invention of the sewing machine in the 1700s, people were able to make proper round dots on the fabric. And yes it was a time when the industrial revolution was also taking place.
In the 1800s, the name “Polka” was given to these dots. But it was in the 1900s when polka dots gained popularity because the winner of Miss America wore a dotted swimsuit back then. And a few years later, we were introduced to “Minnie Mouse.”
Even in Indian cinema, actresses and actors, both donned the polka dots looks. Them wearing such clothes in their movies led to the entry of polka dots in the lives of common masses.
