Description: A white cotton collar in a long rectangular shape. One edge has a half-centimetre hem, the other is the selvedge edge. The collar is folded in half forming a 45 cm long piece that is sewn together at one corner with loose stitches. The letter "G" is embroidered in pink at the corner where the edges are sewn together.

A collar is an accessory to many forms of clothing, such as a dress, blouse or shirt, which fastens around the neck. The modern use of the collar, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, dates back to the 1300s. Collars come in a variety of styles that change with contemporary fashions but collars as used today originated during Medieval times with the ruffle style that was created by a drawstring at the neck of shirts. Detachable collars were in use after the sixteenth century.
