Default Wraps

I'm not sure if I've brought this up before or only considered bringing it up and it's for pure curiosity as well as historical facts.


I'm thinking along the lines of lifters that were the first to use wraps way before we had things like Tommy Kono sleeves and the sturdy knee and wrist wraps that we see today, does anyone know or have any idea what the Olympic and possible Powerlifters used to use in their place?


I've seen white/cream coloured wraps around the lifters knees which look akin to bandage but are they just a basic bandage style material or something more substantial? Does anyone know for certain or have a link or a book that covers the topic at all?

Probably would take 15 minutes to wrap one leg, and to get it tight you'd get 1500 wraps per leg, lol
