“Tenugui” is a type of traditional Japanese hand towel. (34cmx91cm)

Since tenugui have a smooth texture that is unlike typical Western terrycloth towels, they can be used in various ways other than just drying hands or bodies.

You can use it as a wash cloth too, and use it on your face.

However, a tenugui can be used as door curtains, towell, to wrap a lunch box, a bottle or some gifts, on the head in the kitchen or by kendoka etc. You can also hang it on the wall as a beautiful decoration.

The print on the tenugui are made with a traditional method of dyeing: Chusen, which is using stencil paper. Since the dye infiltrates the cloth, the patterns appear on both sides. When the tenugui is used for a long period of time, the dye fades, giving it a well-aged look.
