The origin and development of the tie (kravata) as a word and as a garment
The main objective of this short overview of the Croatian light cavalrymen experience in the Thirty Years War (1618–1648) is to discuss the making of the tie (Croatian kravata, German krawatte, French cravate), as a garment and as a linguistic term.
While today the tie is a universal symbol of male fashion, its origins are in Croatian folklore. It deserves a greater attention from historians as well as anyone with interest in this civilisation phenomenon.
