    The ancient Egyptians knew how to use starch. They used it to stick sheets of papyrus together. According to Pliny they made starch by mixing some of the finest wheaten flour with boiling water. [ 25 ] They also soaked linen bandages in starch which became hard and stiff when dried. [ 26 ] It would be tempting to assume that they achieved the pleats in their clothes by using starch, but there is no evidence for that. [ 27 ]

Ancient Egyptian clothes refers to clothing worn in ancient Egypt from the end of the Neolithic period (prior to 3100 BC) to the collapse of the Ptolemaic dynasty with the death of Cleopatra VII in 30 BC. Egyptian clothing was filled with a variety of colors. Adorned with precious gems and jewels, the fashions of the Ancient Egyptians were made for not only beauty but also comfort. Egyptian fashion was created to keep cool while in the hot desert. [1]

Men and women in Egypt likes to decorate their clothing with jewelry. Their jewels are earrings, bracelets, anklets, rings, and beaded necklaces. Wealthy or noble people like to make their jewelry out of gold, silver, or precious stones. The different color stones stand out on the plain, white linen of their clothes. Jewelry are not only use to decorate clothes, it also means luck in the superstitious society of Egypt.
