A Timna excavation team from Tel Aviv University has uncovered an extensive fabric collection. This is the first discovery of textiles dating from the era of David and Solomon, and sheds new light on the historical fashions of the Holy Land.
Fine wool textile dyed red and blue.
The textile used the varying colors of natural animal hair to create black and orange-brown colors for decorative bands.
