In the Agricultural Museum are examples of ancient textiles [linen and cotton] made from the crops grown by the Ancient Egyptians. The spindles they used are also on display. Some of the material has been embroidered in post-pharaonic times.
Wool is on display, and sandals made from woven stalks of grass can be seen.
