The Earliest Evidence of Weaving in Japan is Associated with the Jōmon Period.

 This culture is defined by pottery decorated with cord patterns.

In a shell mound in the Miyagi Prefecture, dating back about 5,500, some cloth fragments were discovered made from bark fibers. 
Hemp fibers were also discovered in the Torihama shell midden, Fukui Prefecture, dating back to the Jōmon period, suggesting that these plants could also have been used for clothing.
Some pottery pattern imprints depict also fine mat designs, proving their weaving techniques.
The patterns on the Jōmon pottery show people wearing short upper garments, close-fitting trousers, funnel-sleeves, and rope-like belts.
The depictions also show clothing with patterns that are embroidered or painted arched embroidery digitizing designs, though it is not apparent whether this indicates what the clothes look like or whether that simply happens to be the style of representation used.
It is interesting to note that the pottery also shows no distinction between male and female garments.
This may have been true because during that time period clothing was more for digitizing decoration than social distinction, but it might also just be because of the representation on the pottery rather than how people actually dressed at the time.
Since bone needles were also found, it is assumed that they wore dresses that were sewn together.
Several slivers are combined. Each sliver will have thin and thick spots, and by combining several slivers together a more consistent size can be reached.
Since combining several slivers produces a very thick rope of cotton fibres, directly after being combined the slivers are separated into rovings.
These rovings (or slubbings) are then what are used in the spinning process.
Generally speaking, for machine processing, a roving is about the width of a pencil.
One advantage of fluorescent lights is that they produce little heat, which may also be harmful to textiles.
Incandescent lights produce a large amount of heat in addition to large quantities of infrared radiation, which is likewise damaging to the fibers in antique textiles.
If incandescent lights must be used, they should be placed far enough away from display cases that their heat does not affect the contents.
