Evidence of patchwork—piecing small pieces of fabric together to create a larger piece, then quilting layers of textile together—has been found throughout history. The earliest examples have been located in Egyptian tombs and also in early age of China about 5000 years ago. Further finds have been dated from the early Middle Ages, where layers of quilted fabric were used in the construction of armour—this kept the soldiers warm and protected. Japanese armour was made in a similar fashion.
