WHY EGYPTIAN?

Little Egypt, Illinois, USA

Our region of Southern Illinois has been known as “Little Egypt” for hundreds of years. The nickname has a couple origin stories: one referencing the historic grain trade between southern and northern Illinois, and another, the intersecting rivers of the region. At Egyptian, we just know that Belleville, IL is our home. We are proud of this location that allows us to provide the best service in business products and interiors to the entire St. Louis region and beyond.
