Throughout Egypt’s rich and varied history, the appearance and attire of women has evolved immensely. Women’s clothing are an expression and symbolize the culture, religion and heritage of the period in which they lived. The Egyptian woman’s constantly changing appearance reflects the different stages of the women’s rights movement as well as her critical role in various monumental historical events throughout Egypt’s history.
This modest yet stunning chair illustrates the early stages of veiling for Egyptian women. This 45 x 90 cm painting, painted by one of our talented artists, elegantly captures the delicate femininity and strength of the Egyptian woman. The chair itself is made of high-quality beech wood and will add a whimsical touch to any space.
