Venus Figurine of ‘Venus of Lespugue’ found in southern France about 25,000 years ago. Some other western European figurines were adorned with basket hats or caps, belt were worn at the waist, and a strap of cloth wrapped around the body right above the breast. Eastern European figurines wore best, hung low on the hips and sometimes string skirts. However, according to archeologists, James M Adovasio, Soffer and Hyland, the garments are more likely ritual wear, real and imagined, which served as a signifier of distinct social category.
The artifacts were found by archaeologist which says textile arts, spindle needles and weaving sticks were in use 5,000 BC.
