Ancient Egyptians

Egyptan facts.

Egypt is a hot country and so people wore lightweight clothes which kept them cool.

We can see what they wore from many paintings and sculptures they left behind.

Ancient Egyptians clothes covered most of their skin and were made from plant fibren such as linen.



Linen was made from the fibres of the flax plant he Egyptians grew.

The Egyptian children went around completely naked.When they were six years old they began to wear clothes that would protect then from the intense dry heat.



Men of the working classes wore a loincloth of short kilt and sometimes a type os shirt.
