This is a cotton cloth dyed with safflower.
It was probably part of a kimono that was dismantled after being used as a kimono.
The brightly colored kimono could not be worn by ordinary farmers and was worn by some upper class families.
They were dyed using a highly sophisticated technique with a long history called itajime shibori.
They are displayed as textile art or used in products.
