Named for the famous Egyptian Queen, Nefertiti. It is rumored that she ruled the Upper and Lower Kingdoms on her own after her husband’s death before her son Tutankhamun took the throne. With her husband she changed the polytheistic religion of Egypt to the worship of one god. This wrap evokes the sheer pleated gowns and serpentine vines found in carvings and artwork of Nefertiti.
