Is Textile-Making a Simple Matter?

The study of archaeological textiles in Greece is still at its early stage because, due to the climate of the country, the finds preserved so far have usually small dimensions and have been mineralized. Nevertheless, their study proves that the inhabitants of this country had reached a high degree of technical knowledge since very early, an important precondition that enabled them to exercise control on all the stages of textile producing. Thus, in yarn making, purple dyeing, textile embellishing and/or embroidering the Greeks of antiquity can boast magnificent products.
