Egyptian clothing

  1. 1. Egyptian clothing Made By Amanda and Ada
  2. 2. Egyptian Fashion <ul><li>In ancient Egypt men wore skirts made from flax. Flax was a plant that was wet until soft to make the skirt and was usually tied with a belt. </li></ul>
  3. 4. Childs clothing <ul><li>Children wore no cloths at all until they were about a teenager. Their parents will not put anything on them until their old enough. </li></ul>
  4. 5. Flax turns into linen
  5. 6. Facts about linen <ul><li>The basic staple of men’s clothing was a linen kilt called a schenti. Much like the women’s kalasiris, the schenti kept the same basic shape for 3,000 years. The schenti was a rectangle of knee length linen cloth that wrapped around the waist and fastened in the front by overlapping and tucking the ends. Like women’s garments, paintings depict more elaborate men’s dress during the New Kingdom. This new costume consisted of a pleated schenti and a long, sheer, pleated robe. Another option was made up of the schenti, a transparent overskirt and a collarless shirt with wide, pleated sleeves </li></ul>
