Roman textiles were mainly made from wool, flax and silk. Hemp, cotton and other fibers were also used in varying degrees.
"The borders of Greek and Roman garments were often finely embroidered."
Textiles from the Roman era have survived, mainly in very wet conditions (e.g., in bogs) or in very dry conditions (deserts).
