In cold climates, people wear thick woolen woven scarves to keep warm. In places where the climate is dry, dusty or polluted, people can wrap a thin scarf around their heads to keep their hair clean. With the development of time, this habit has become the trend of women in many cultures.
In some countries, the preparation of clothing such as scarves is a common trade item.
Scarves of various colors are also used by some Australian football fans. The name of the supporting football team is printed on the scarf, and the fans will show off in the audience and cheer.
