Two Napoleonic War skirmishing units of the British army were the first to adopt camouflage in the form of a rifle green jacket, however many camouflaged textile patterns have been developed to suit the need to match combat clothing to different kinds of terrain (such as woodland, snow, and desert).
The military camouflage that we are so familiar with today was developed by the French during the course of World War I. However, these days, camouflage has exploded into the fashion world as not a way to blend in, but a way to stand out.
Camouflage has exploded in everything from camouflage purses, to camo bedding, camo seat covers, camo baby bedding, and anything else you could possibly think of. While camouflage purses will not be theft proof, no matter how well it blends in, it will certainly make a fashion statement. The great thing about camouflage is that it is not gender specific. Camo comes in tons of colors, ranging from the traditional green to pink camo.
