Coptic cloth

fine, dense fabric produced in the 2nd - 8th centuries A.D. by the Copts, Christian descendants of the ancient Egyptians, from whom they had inherited the art. The warp was cotton, and into this coloured woollen wefts in linen weave were fed, creating simple folk and animal motifs or other popular adornments of the time, which later included Christian symbolism.
