All of men use to wear a wrap-round skirt that was tied around their waist with a belt. Sometime the material would be wrapped around their legs as well.

Egyptian women wore full-length straight dresses with either one or two shoulder straps.


Children would not wear any clothes until they were 6 years old and when they were old enough to they wore the same clothes as the men and women did.
