In the 5th century, an upper class Mayan woman was buried with 25 layers of fabric covering the pottery in her tomb.

To textile historians, the interesting thing about this burial is that the fabrics have different weave structures. Many were very fine. For instance one fabric in particular had a thread count of 100 threads per inch. Also several times the tomb was reopened and fabric was added (I figure some friends must have owed her the odd swap or two and made good)
