Silk Pants and Gold Hair in Ancient Egypt: What You Need to Know
- by admin
A few days ago I was in a small village in central Egypt, near the town of Khenet, which lies at the heart of the ancient Silk City, where the silk ties and silk pants worn by the Egyptian pharaohs were made.
There were many shops selling the same items: silk ties, silk pants and gold hair.
One shop, the Silk City Coffee Shop, was owned by an Egyptian, the owner of the shop, Nesrin al-Daghloul, a man of 60, who was a member of the ruling class and one of the richest people in Egypt at the time.
I asked him about his family and the reasons behind the silk trousers.
“My father is a goldsmith, and my mother is a tailor,” he said.
He also gave me some pictures of his family.
They have four children, aged between four and 19.
His wife is an Egyptian princess, a well-known beauty.
I also saw him with two of his daughters, who were married at the same time to wealthy businessmen.
“I have always liked to have my own daughters,” he told me.
I then went back to the coffee shop to find out more about the history of silk pants in Egypt.
Silk pants were invented around 4,500 years ago in the Roman Empire, which ruled Egypt from about 3000 BCE to 600 BCE.
These trousers were made from a material called jade, which had been used for centuries as a thread, and the fabric was then wrapped in linen.
They were worn under a cloak and covered with gold threads.
The silk was woven into the fabric and it became very valuable.
In Ancient Egypt, silk was also used for weaving cloth, and it was believed that silk could be woven into all kinds of things.
I found out about the silk pants when I visited a museum in Khenetsu, an ancient town on the banks of the Nile, which was owned and managed by the University of Alexandria, a prestigious institution in the city of Alexandria.
The owner, Mohamed Abou Noussi, a professor of Ancient Egypt at Khenietsu, told me that the silk fabrics were first made in Ancient Greece, and then spread throughout the Middle East and Asia Minor, where they were introduced to the Egyptians.
“They came from India, where there is a tradition of wearing silk pants,” he explained.
“And then they spread all over the Middle and Eastern countries, from Turkey to the Philippines, and eventually even to Rome.”
The silk silk trousers were a popular garment during the Roman empire, but it wasn’t until the 13th century that the fabrics were introduced into the Mediterranean world.
The Italian-born French architect, Renzo Piano, who visited Egypt during the Renaissance and was responsible for designing many of the great monuments, including the Pyramids, and most importantly the Sphinx, was a lover of silk, which he used to make his own silk ties.
It was not until the 17th century, when Leonardo da Vinci made his first contribution to the art of architecture and design, that the cotton silk ties began to be used by European masters.
“It’s a fascinating story that I hope will inspire young people to become interested in history and the world around them,” Noussiri said.

He has been a member since at least the mid-19th century and his wife is the daughter of the king, and has a brother and a sister.
Nesrann al-darghloui, who also owns a number of other shops in Khent, told my correspondent that silk pants were first introduced to Egypt in the 16th century.
“When the Egyptian king Akhenaten came to power, he wanted to make the silk garments that would protect the country from foreign invaders,” he continued.
“He needed to dress up as a real man, so he went to Europe and got a linen cloth, which we call a silk shirt.”
The clothes were made by weaving silk thread into the fabrics.
The threads were then wrapped with gold thread.
The cloth was then tied with gold buttons, which were made into a pair of trousers.
