What has the purpose of the handkerchief been throughout the years?

A handkerchief is usually a small square piece of cloth used for personal purposes, such as for blowing the nose or dabbing a sweaty brow. However, handkerchiefs and pocket squares are also a key clothing accessory for elegant and formal occasions. This is shown by the other name for handkerchief: kerchief. The term came from the French word "couvrir" to cover and "chef" referring to the head. In the Middle Ages, kerchiefs were used to cover and protect an individual's head and hair. Later, in the 16th century, people began to carry kerchiefs in their pockets to wipe their foreheads or their noses. At this point, as the purpose of the kerchief had changed, the word hand was added to make handkerchief. Handkerchiefs are now also used for injuries as well as to store and carry small items. In the late 18th century white handkerchiefs were waved by women, using them as hand movements while dancing — a show of elegance.
