Recently I posted that because 2020 has been a challenging year I was putting together a Yuletide Shopping Guide with the intent to help artisan members of our community & to help spotlight items that support our religious devotions and practices. Starting with resources for our crafters, makers and DIYers. So far I’ve spotlighted cookie cutters, craft molds and fabric with Mesoamerican connections.
Pay attention to the product listings, as there are multiple options for fabric, sometimes options for wallpaper. For those who aren’t crafty, sometimes there’s also options for purchasing finished goods (tablecloths, pillowcases, curtains and more) made with the fabric pattern.
In some ways Kemetics are incredibly fortunate in the amount of surviving historical sources from both the archaeological record and ancient manuscripts. There is so much rich artistic depictions already existing for the Gods and Goddesses of their pantheon. Some of these fabrics are direct inspiration and variations of those ancient sources, but some are creative nods and touches to the past.
Pennycandy has a small pattern collection with different variations of hieroglyphics, accompanied by a range of coordinating fabric patterns including a lotus motif.
Marchhare features some really great children’s designs of the Egyptian Gods (Isis, Bastet, Ma’at, Horus, Osiris, Anubis, and Hathor) altogether in one adorable pattern, or individually in a cut-and-sew plushie style.
Raveneve offers an array of colorful prints inspired from Egyptian archaeology. Among the patterns you can find gods featured such as Anubis, Mut, Ma’at, Amun, Thoth, Osiris, Horus and more.
