Some Stacks of Cloth

Written on September 16, 2008

This is a corner of Sri showroom showing stacks of asa (hemp and ramie) and cotton fabrics, an old ledger book, and some other antique Japanese books–notably books from the Shikoku 88 Temple pilgrimage.  On the right are two, vertically placed rolls of hand woven cotton, white with a dark indigo plaid, that I bought in Turfan, Xianjiang Province, in China.  The Chinese cotton rolls are similar in width to Japanese cloth, about 13″/ 33 cm wide and I think they’re quite handsome.
