"The Cloth of Egypt: All About Assiut" is an informative book on the history, legend, and use of the unique textile known as assuit.
Assiut is a truly unique textile whose origins have been shrouded in myth, lore and legend. It's been prized among vintage textile collectors and amongst belly dancers - an unusual meeting of two unrelated worlds.
Dawn Devine personally adores this cloth and has spent the last 15 years in a massive interdisciplinary research project to unearth the history of this cloth with a goal to confirm the legends, debunk the myths, and present the true history of this amazing cloth.
