The bola was originally invented by an Arizonian silversmith by the name of Victor Cedarstaff.

These neck cloths, which probably descended from the Roman fascalia worn by orators to warm the vocal chords, struck the fancy of the king, and he soon made them an insignia of royalty as he created a regiment of Royal Cravattes.
