close-up of the work cloth from Niigata prefecture. Wisteria weaving called FUJI-FU.
It seems not a very impressive cloth when you just have a look at it but it is very rough and heavy when you have it in hands

Looking at these beautiful pictures and reading about your comments, I cannot help thinking about Taiwan.
Bast fibers have been commonly used by the Taiwan aboriginal people, cotton being a recent addition as it began to be bartered after the arrival of the first Han Chinese settlers on the island - after the 17th cent. The other material used for clothing by the Taiwanese indigenous tribes was leather.
They commonly used ramie, hemp, banana… and other natural fibers to make their clothes. In fact, hemp in Taiwan seems to have been known at a very early stage as archeological findings show its use 12000 years ago – the earliest known use in the world : pottery shards from the Stone Age discovered in Taiwan were found to have imprint of hemp rope. See :

Today, some Taiwanese aborigines are trying to bring back these weaving traditions, and there have been some very interesting experience in this field. Two recent articles on the subject :

Concerning the traditional techniques of weaving of the ramie and banana fibers in Taiwan, and also about the traditional plants use for dyes, there are some very interesting infos and pictures on this website :
