The Buddha taught the first monks and nuns to make their robes of "pure" cloth, which meant cloth that no one wanted. The first monks wore robes patched together from rags, as did many mendicant holy men in India at the time. As the wandering community of disciples grew, the Buddha found that some rules about robes were necessary. These are recorded in the Vinaya-pitaka of the Pali Canon or Tripitaka.
