Sashes are used distinctively in some regiments either around the waist or across the shoulder. Developed from the 18th century, sashes are worn over many different regiments of military dress in both the British and Scottish army. At the time of the American civil war, silk sashes in crimson were authorized for officers and red woollen sashes were worn by the non-commissioned officers of the regular army. The modern British army retains a scarlet sash for wear by sergeants serving in infantry regiments. Similarly, a crimson sash is worn around the waist of officers in the foot guards and this practice continues into the armies of the commonwealth.
Sashes in this category are made in-house at Wyedean. View the range of colours and sizes below.
