As in the pharaonic period, Coptic fabrics remained well known for a long time and even in distant lands.
For example, in India, they were called kabati, which comes from the plural form of the Arabic Qibt (Copt, Egyptian).
Like the great "Antinoe veil" (fourth century, Paris, Louvre Museum), they had several tiers of decorations.
In order to create this effect, the material was immersed in a bath of dye, but certain parts of it were covered with a protective substance such as clay or wax to prevent that area from being dyed.
Other techniques they used were brocading and tapestry.
The tapestry technique allowed wool decorations to be woven into the surrounding linen.
There are sites such as Antinoe and Akhmin where tens of thousands of these textiles have been unearthed, particularly in the necropolises.
Patterned textiles were brought into the mainstream around the time of Alexander the Great's conquest of Egypt in the fourth century BC.
As early as the Pharaonic period of Egypt's New Kingdom, and because of increasing contact with the Near East, a fashion developed in Egypt of wearing ornate garments decorated with colorful decorations.
This fashion disappeared during the Late Pharaonic Period only to reappear during Roman times, with the spread of the use of wool.
The decorations on unbleached flax and purple wool reproduce geometrical and vegetal motifs identical with those of the sculptures and mosaics of the same period.
In Egypt, the paintings of the third and fourth centuries often represent the dead clad in garments ornamented in the same way.
