Adam's Fig Leaf

This is something that my mother and I have briefly discussed before, but never did have a good answer to. For some reason, I was thinking about it again the other day...

What if the coats YHWH made in the beginning had more to do with the difference in lambskin and fig leaves, than what one was supposed to wear/cover? ...just wondering, because if one knows anything about fig trees (or milkweed sap, poison ivy, other protective plant irritants), that would not be a wise thing to wear on one's body. And various indigenous peoples may have an honor/shame structure without any concept of wearing clothes, so that's not fully relevant, I wouldn't think, either.

Any thoughts?
