This is a rare antique 'shima cho'. 'Shima' means stripe cotton, and 'cho' means book. Shima-cho was made for woven pattern samples by weaver or fabric collector in olden times.
This piece is made of 575 pieces fragments, includes 'Tanbafu'( cotton and silk blend fabric, which was made by farmers for themselves), Chugata(katazome) cotton and others. It is made of 38 pages.
Inside of the back cover, text reads 'Meiji 13(1881)'. So the most fabrics were woven in late Edo Period( 1603-1867).
So this piece is very valuable to know the fabrics in that age.
