The introduction was useful for my purposes as a nice articulation of the sociological importance of cloth at various times and places. The variety was tremendous -- different kinds of fabric as transmitters of wealth on Pacific Islands, mulberry and other fiber-based fabrics made by minority ethnic groups in what is now Japan, and how those were assimilated into the empire; the ways in which Sikh dress was shaped by the British colonization of India.
