Tenugui

The national hand towel of Japan.

A long narrow piece of hand-dyed cotton (90 cm by 35 cm) that is used by people who work with their hands; sushi chefs, carpenters, gardeners, drummers.





They can be worn as head twists, to tie around the neck, or in the bath as a towel, Tenugui have been used for hundreds of years.




Simple designs on coarse white cotton that bear greetings of season, announcements of new enterprises or simply business identification.
