Hirali Tenugui

$ 28.00 USD

A longtime fixture in Japanese homes, the tenugui is an all-purpose textile with as many applications as you can imagine. Add a reversible Hirali tenugui to your wardrobe as a bold accessory, or repurpose it as a table runner your friends will love. Give a tenugui as a decorative gift, or grab one to dress up your bento box. When used as a towel, tenugui soak up moisture quickly and dry nearly as fast - thanks to the lack of a hem - making them handy additions to any kitchen or bathroom. Try a tenugui for yourself and experience a perfect combination of function and form.

Learn about the craft behind the creation of Hirali textiles and the inspiration for their vibrant motifs in this Rikumo Journal entry.

About Takeno Senko
From its location in Sakai City - the Town of Tenugui - dyeing company Takeno Senko is perfectly positioned to create top-quality textiles, and it doesn't disappoint. Only a few short years ago, Takeno Senko's artisans perfected their method of creating reversible textiles by roll printing different colors on each side of thin cotton fabric, a feat no other company has managed to match. The result is Hirali, a collection of towels, tenugui, and stoles that boast one-of-a-kind designs made nowhere else in the world.

Materials: 100% cotton
Dimensions: 35.43" L x 13.39" W
Care: Hand wash separately from other fabrics, as some color may transfer. Avoid bleach or brightening agents. Hang dry in a shaded spot. Note that some initial fraying is normal for tenugui. Do not pull any loose threads; instead, trim with scissors. Ironing at a high temperature may cause discoloration.
