This is an antique fukusa from late Edo period(1603-1868).
The right side is made of Tsumugi
silk(weft is Tsumugi
yarn) and kamon is woven.
It is lined with Europe Chintz cotton, which was imported at the age. Its flower pattern is very cute and impressive!
The right side has some tears. We are sorry but the tears are more than we marked in the figure. Textile becomes weak, and tears will increase easily near future.
However, it is still very valuable piece for its Europe cotton chintz textile.
