Facts Tulle-bi-telli, which is frequently called Assuit (or Asyut, Assyut, Assiut, and other variations), is a textile marrying cotton or linen mesh with small strips of metal. Tulle-bi-telli translates roughly as "net with metal," but it looks much nicer than its plain name. Assuit is the city where it is made. It's located about 234 miles south of Cairo and is the largest town in Upper Egypt.

Assuit was first settled in pharaonic times, and was then called Syut. It had considerable strategic value because of its positioning between Upper and Lower Egypt  . Textiles similar in concept to tulle-bi-telli date back to these ancient times. "It is believed that some form of metal embroidery in Egypt dates back to the ancient dynasties" [2]. Metal thread embroidery was used extensively throughout the Middle East, Asia, and parts of Europe, and references are made to its use with Egyptian linen in the Bible .

"In the Museum of Montbijou at Berlin are preserved specimens of netting made by Egyptians over three thousand years ago. These nets are made from flax. The Egyptian production of this hand-made net surpasses modern fibers in intricacy of design, each net composed of some three-hundred and sixty-five individual fibers. Their dye techniques were equally sophisticated; metallic salts to improve the fastness of dyes has been found in textiles in tombs dating from before 1500 B.D. These early embroideries were done with the application of precious metals, especially gold. The pure metal was beaten into thin plates, divided into small slips which were rounded by a hammer, and then filed to form wire. Few remains of ancient wire work have been found. This net would certainly have qualified as "transparent", as shown on the tomb pictures"

In the New Testament, Jesus, Mary, and Joseph flee to Egypt during Jesus' infancy. Due to a vision had by Pope Theophilus near the end of the third century CE, some people believe the Holy Family went to Mount Qussqam in Assuit, and stayed in a cave for six months and ten days . The Monastery of Al-Muharraq was built in this area. In the Coptic era, an altar to Mary was built in the monastery

Tulle-bi-telli is hot and heavy, but it drapes very, very well. It was used in Hollywood productions, like the lost Cecil B. DeMille opus Cleopatra. It was draped on Hedy Lamarr in Samson and Delilah. It was worn extensively as dresses in old Egyptian musicals. It was also worn draped over the head, as wraps, and as wedding gowns. And even if it wasn't being worn, it was being used to decorate. Piano shawls were extremely popular, and specimens can still be found on occasion in antique shops
