Coptic textiles were made between the 5th and 11th centuries AD. Early examples incorporate Egyptian and classical motifs; later pieces show the influence of Byzantium and, later still, of Islamic art. Woven in wool and linen, they are admired for their bold pictorial designs and saturated colours.
The Douglas Hyde Gallery is located in Trinity College Dublin 2.
