Like neighboring Greece and Rome, clothing in Ancient Egypt consisted
mainly of simple tunics made from linen/flax. The working class also wore loincloths
of animal hide.
Wigs, made from wool or human hair, were worn by both
men and women. In keeping with the customary cleanliness of the culture, wigs
were changed daily. Curled wigs were saved for special occasions.
Transparent/translucent clothing was a sign of wealth. All
Egyptians, rich and poor, wore jewelry!
