Kamawanu Tenugui - Shibori Dots Red
We are pleased to offer this series of vividly designed and beautifully illustrated tenugui towels. These multipurpose textiles have been used for centuries as handkerchiefs, gift wrap, napkins, and wall art. This collection is dyed using the “chusen” method, which has been practiced since the Meiji period. This method has a characteristic appearance due to the fact that the dye produces different shades of color depending on the weather, temperature, and humidity at the time of dying. These 100% cotton towels are reversible and the pattern appears on both the front and reverse sides.
About Tenugui Towels
A tenugui towel is a thin vibrantly-printed Japanese textile that typically measures 35 cm in width and 90 cm in length. Like furoshiki, it can be used for wrapping gifts, bottles, and other common items. It also makes an absorbent dish towel and washcloth. Tenuguis can also be purposed into table runners, placemats, curtains- the sky’s the limit! They are often given as gifts or souvenirs from travelers in Japan.
Materials: 100% Cotton
Dimensions: 35.5" L x 13" W
Care: Machine wash cold and line dry. With each wash, it is inevitable that the dye will fade and the cloth will soften. This is a unique quality of the chusen dyeing technique. As is normal for tenugui towels, the edges are plainly cut and not hemmed which may fray.
