Historians believe that the clothing of Iranian men and women has not undergone profound changes since the beginning of the ancient history of this country and its meaning has been preserved in Iranian culture. Especially aesthetics, beliefs, social classes as well as the development of the fabric and textile industry.

Examination of historical documents shows that the clothing of the Iranians from 550 BC to the time of the Crusades was a continuation of the clothing of the Babylonians and Assyrians and it was very diverse. In 1350 BC, according to documents obtained from the Elamite civilization, Iranians wore "full clothes". The Iranians considered it polite to leave any part of the body open except for two hands and used headbands or hats or slippers to cover their heads and feet. Nowhere in Iran's 3,500-year history has it ever seen women appear naked or half-naked, except at the hands of foreigners trying to separate this nation from its civilization and culture.

A look at the long periods of Iranian life shows that the protection of personal and interpersonal privacy has been of great importance, and this is evident in their clothing if being out more than the roundness of the face and palms of both hands is considered disrespectful and individuals’ women, in particular, have observed this. Therefore, according to experts, the structure of women's clothing in Iran shows the depth of the ancient view of Iranian culture regarding women's clothing, interpersonal privacy, and its impact on the development of the individual and society.

The prevalence of hijab among different nations that had different beliefs, religions, and geographical conditions, also indicates the innate tendency of women to wear hijab, and scientists attribute the history of hijab and women's clothing to our prehistoric and Stone Age.
