This is an antique shima cho, fabric collection book.
The age is not written, but this book seemed to be made around mid Meiji period(1868-1912). Most fabrics are cotton, and some fabrics are blended silk yarns. Most cotton yarns seem to be hand spun ones, but machine spun yarns may be included.
Anyway, we can feel the affection to the fabric of the owner. Fabrics are elaborately pasted, and hems of the fabrics are covered with additional paper like frame. We have never seen such shima-cho.
And we can easily tell that the owner carefully collected fabrics, which have different charms.
We hope you can understand by photos what we are writing here.
Wonderful shima cho!
