A mini Egyptian painted papyrus (measures 10cm by 7.5cm). <br> <br> Papyrus is first known to have been used in ancient Egypt (at least as far back as the First Dynasty), but it was also used throughout the Mediterranean region and in Kingdom of Kush. Ancient Egyptians used this plant as a writing material and for boats, mattresses, mats, rope, sandals and baskets. <br> <br> This painted papyrus is available in assorted designs, as shown. One is selected at random on checkout.

A papyrus sheet decorated with a painted ancient Egyptian design.

The first use of papyrus paper is believed to have taken place around 4000 BC. The ancient Egyptians kept the technology of papyrus-making secret, enabling them to hold the monopoly on its production.

The raw material of papyrus paper comes from the plant Cyperus papyrus. The plant grew along the banks of the Nile and provided the Egyptians with a versatile raw material. Papyrus was used for the manufacture of boats, ropes and baskets, but its singular most valuable product was the papyrus paper. Not only was this Egypt’s greatest export, but it revolutionised the way that valuable information was recorded.

These papyri feature an assortment of painted designs based on ancient Egyptian art and design, one of which will be selected at random.

A charming gift for buddying Egyptologists.
