Material: The ancient Egyptians wore very light clothes made from linen, which was made from the flax
plant that they grew along the Nile during the annual flooding season. Once the flax plant is
fully grown the Egyptians would harvest all the plants that they grew and soak then in water to
soften. Once soften they would separate each strand of flax into fibers and beat them. After
the flax has been properly prepared the would spin the fibers into thread, which would then be
woven into clothe.
Clothes-men: In ancient Egypt all men from poor to rich to royal all wore a wrap-round skirt that
was tied up around-waist level-with a belt, but the length on the other hand varied
depending on what was “in” at the time. For example during the old kingdom every
male wore the skirt very short, probably because of the heat and the lack of
material + skill making the cloth, and producing the fabric/plant. But as for the
middle kingdom the men wore it up to their calf's, and during the new kingdom the
most fashionable way to were the skirt was to have it pleated. To represent their
class and their wealth the richer man would buy the best quality linen which was
very fine and transparent. Along with buying better linen they would also wear as
much jewelry as they could afford and decorate the clothes to stand out from the
poor people. Another thing that they did was wearing fancy head dresses.
Clothes-women : In ancient Egypt the females-like the men- all wore their clothes the same way, but
instead of having a skirt tied up at the waist like the men, they wore straight-full length-
dresses with one or two shoulder straps. During the New kingdom time having their
clothes pleated and draped was the most fashionable way to wear their clothes. Just like
the men the richer and royal Egyptian women all wore the finest quality, transparent
linen and decorated their clothes, and wore jewelry and headdresses.

they were around the age of six. After that they would wear the same clothes as the
men and women.

powder to line their eyes, and darken their lashes and brows. Along with darkening a few of their

blue and green pigments they would also dye their lips and nails with henna dye. Just like the jewelry
this was also a thing that they did to makes their self's more attractive to the gods.
Material: In ancient Mesopotamia the people wore clothes made out of linen and sheep wool. The reason
why they used both linen and wool is so they could be warm during winter an cool during the
summer, but along with wearing linen to be cool they also wore it because it was very durable and
soft, and the more they washed it the softer it would become, but not only that if they dyed the
linen the colour wont fade.

anything but over time the Mesopotamians started to gain more knowledge and skill of

the winter. The rob that they wore during the winter times had the wooly side on the out
side and was kept in place with a belt and was pined on the right shoulder.

have included animals, leaves and flowers. The headdresses were probably one of the most
important Part of the wardrobe, they represented what class the person wearing it is and were
worn also for religious reasons. For example the headdress that the queen worn would have ringlets
of gold with animals and leaves on it and the ladies of the court would wear ones with beech leafs.
Some of the types of stone that were used as jewelry are lapis lazuli, carnelian and topaz. The
lapis lazuli stone was the most prized stone it was in the headdresses, clothing and statues. The
carnelian is a reddish-brown stone that was also often in the jewelry that they worn. Topaz is the
