This Egyptian Cotton Towel is 100% Egyptian Cotton, grown in Egypt, Made in Egypt and imported into Australia by My Egypt. Egyptian Cotton Towels absorb more moisture than normal cotton. The more they get washed the better they are. Please note don't use Fabric Softener as it flattens the pile.

Note: Some Stores can label Egyptian Cotton if they have 10% Egyptian Cotton in them.

Our's at My Egypt are 100% Egyptian Cotton.

Egyptian cotton is formed from the rich soil beside the “Nile River”. The moist atmosphere of the “Nile River Valley” makes the ideal conditions to raise long cotton fibers called “staples”. Fibers from Egyptian Cotton are substantially longer than regular cotton.

The longer staple translates into more uninterrupted fiber to use when composing yarn and threads. This means there are fewer splices and therefore the threads and eventually the fabrics are stronger. This also gives us the ability to turn these extra-long fibers into very fine yarn making it softer and more lustrous than regular cotton.

The Wadjet Eye.

The Eye of Horus is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health. The eye is personified in the goddess Wadjet It is also known as ''The Eye of Ra''

The name Wadjet is derived from wadj meaning green, hence the green one. The "uraeus" from the Egyptian "iaret" meaning "risen one" from the image of a cobra rising up in protection. Wadjet was one of the earliest of Egyptian deities who later became associated with other goddesses such as Bast, Sekhmet, Mut, and Hathor. Hence was under her protection.

Funerary amulets were often made in the shape of the Eye of Horus. The Wadjet or Eye of Horus is "the central element" of seven "gold, faience, carnelian and lapis lazuli" bracelets found on the mummy of Shoshenq II.The Wedjat was intended to protect the pharaoh here in the afterlifeand to ward off evil. Ancient Egyptian and Near Eastern sailors would frequently paint the symbol on the bow of their vessel to ensure safe sea travel.
