Ancient Egypt culture, Egyptian fabrics, Anita Stratoss
Archaeologists claim that the linen material of the Egyptian clothing made it hard to produce. Linen is made from plant fiber, and the process of separating the fiber from flax is a difficult process that requires repeated soaking and beatings. However, the Egyptian manipulated the process and managed to get linen. The Egyptians awarded symbols to colors, the reason that made them color conscious when making their clothing. They used the white color on their linen for they gave it a positive and cleansing meaning.According to Anita Stratoss, white denoted purity and omnipotence, and because it had no real color, it represented things sacred and simple (Michelle, par 4).
White was used to symbolize the religious tools, especially used by the priests. Moreover, white was cheap compared to other colors e.g. red color could only be obtained from crushing cochineal insects. The colorless linen kilt was more preferred by men who often stayed out in the scorching sun. Pants were not a good choice to them, so they chose the white linen that protected them from the bleaching sun
