¿Orejeras para el frío? / Winter earmuffs?

El frío ha llegado de improviso, en la sierra de Madrid ya ha nevado y de repente he tenido que buscar toda la ropa de invierno, incluidas bufandas, guantes y orejeras. Orejeras, si. Donde vivo no vienen nada mal sobre todo por la mañana temprano de camino al trabajo. Son prácticas y eligiendo bien el diseño pueden ser un complemento más de vuestro vestuario, ¿pero sabéis que están patentadas y que se inventaron hace más de cien años?


El inventor de las orejeras fue un chico americano, Chester Greenwood, que a sus 15 años, harto de pasar frío mientras patinaba le pidió a su abuela que pusiera en los extremos de un alambre trenzado unas piezas de piel de castor acolchadas. Usando el alambre como diadema conseguía mantener las orejas calientes en los días de invierno de Farmington, Maine.


Todos sus amigos pidieron a sus padres el mismo invento y empezó a hacerse popular. Años más tarde lo patentó y montó una fábrica en los que las produjo durante más de 60 años.

Son un accesorio no muy común, pero las grandes firmas suelen añadir algún modelo todos los inviernos, como Burberrys, Ugg o Chanel.

The cold has come suddenly, in the north of Madrid already snow and suddenly I had to search all my winter clothing, including scarves, gloves and earmuffs. Earmuffs, yes!. Since  I live in the countryside, there are fantastic especially in the early morning on my way to the office. They are so practical and if you choose a nice design they can be a great accessory in your winter looks, but do you know that they are patented and invented more than hundred years ago?

The inventor of earmuffs was an American boy, Chester Greenwood, who at 15 years old, tired of having freeze his ears while ice skating, asked his grandmother to put on the ends of a braided wire pieces of a padded beaver leather. Using the wire as headset wand, he managed to keep ears warm during the winter days in Farmington, Maine.

All his friends asked their parents the same solution and earmuffs started to become popular. Years later he patented them, setting up a factory where produce them for over 60 years.

They are not very common accessory, but fashion brands, even the haute coutures ones, usually add some earmuffs styles every winter in their collections, as Burberrys, Ugg or Chanel.

The new design now include music headphones.

Do you dare to wear them?
