World’s Oldest Dress

A dress find from Egypt, called the Tarkhan Dress and housed in the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology in London, has been radiocarbon-dated – and the result: it’s the oldest garment we know of, about 5000 years old. This makes the piece the oldest piece of evidence for something that was tailored from woven fabric – and with a V-neck, decorative pleats in the yoke area and long sleeves, this is definitely and beautifully tailored.

The National Geographic has a short article about this garment, and there’s also a more in-depth article about the dating in Antiquity.

This is a really exciting garment, and it does show again how old clothing is – and how important it was for mankind…
