Wagner/German Archaeological InstituteA fascinating article in one of the weave forums, WeaveTech, has been going on, all about the discovery of some trousers from Central Asia apparently worn by horsemen 3000 years ago. 

The pants are decorated with patterns and symbols and are made from wool. The pieces that made the final garments, legs and crotch, were shaped on the loom and were designed, so experts think, to be loose enough for freedom of movement and comfort. You can read more in this article from Science News and thanks you WeaveTech for the article and the very interesting discussions which are ongoing.
