What a cool way to love a book – giving it some company while it waits for the reader. A bookmark has always been that for a book. Believed to date back to medieval times in the early 1500’s, when a disc made of a material called Vellum or leather was used to set aside a place on a page to return to. This was especially popular, at that time, for the writers or authors of books.

In Brunei, Ivory was used to mark the pages of scrolls or books. In the 1500’s in England, silk was used to mark papers or pages of articles read by the Queen herself. In later Centuries, the 17th, 18th, and up to the present, a narrow silk ribbon material is used. In many societies, women would teach their daughters how to sew materials together, embroidery, and use needlepoint patterns in order to make unique, one of a kind bookmarks.
