Did you know that the origin of polka dots dates back centuries and it has many different stories associated with it. While some believe polka dots first appeared in Europe, others stay it was first used in Asian but brought to Europe by traders. Others speculated it was the Inca Empire in Peru who was the originator. Polka dots have been seen in artwork from as early as the 1400s. They appeared on Japanese kimonos and Chinese pottery dating back to the Ming Dynasty. The pattern was also used in European fashion during the late 1700s. In the 1800s, Queen Victoria of England even wore a polka dot dress to an event. This cemented the pattern’s status as fashionable, and it eventually became a favorite among many stylish individuals.

Modern Polka Dot Fashion

In the early 20th century, American fashion designer Josephine Hill was credited with popularizing the polka dot pattern. She was known for using the pattern in her designs, making polka dots commonplace in the fashion world. Since then, the pattern has been used in a variety of styles and colors, appearing in everything from clothes to accessories to home decor. Additionally, numerous songs have been written about the pattern, including “Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini” by Brian Hyland. The pattern has even made its way onto the silver screen, with films like Singin’ in the Rain featuring polka dot-clad characters.
