This simple garment was worn both in ancient Greece and Rome. The Romans tended to think only foreigners and barbarians wore sleeves. Men of the upper classes would wear a Toga over it.

The Colobium is a wide, sleeveless, rectangular garment.

The length is 48 inches (from shoulder to hem) and the width is 58 to 60 inches (from side to side).

The Colobium features a simple round neck.

Made from a natural cotton muslin, cotton gauze or polycotton fabric.

While slaves would have worn a plain Colobium, trim can be added for the upper class man.
