A type of thin Japanese cotton textile, tenugui towels are traditionally given as gifts and can be used for everything from wrapping gifts to drying dishes. This beautiful white-and-blue print is dyed with shibori, an ancient Japanese indigo dye technique. The Shibori Tenugui series was created in collaboration with master shibori artists from Kyoto, taking inspiration from the playful beauty of the animal kingdom.

About Sou Sou  
Every piece in this colorful collection is infused with vibrant graphic patterns designed by Japanese artist Katsuji Wakisaka. A celebrated textile designer since 1968, Wakisaka’s inspiration comes from the Kyoto landscape and the mod styles of the 1960s.  With a mission to revitalize traditional Japanese styles, his modern designs combine contemporary patterns with traditional Japanese shapes.

Materials: Cotton
Dimensions: Width: 14" Length: 35"
Care: The edges of a tenugui towel are left seamless for increased absorbency and quick drying. To discourage fraying, trim loose threads with a pair of scissors and throw in the washing machine. The fabric will naturally tighten after repeated usage.
