About Sou Sou
Every piece in this colorful collection is infused with vibrant graphic patterns designed by Japanese artist Karsuji 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: As this product is hand-dyed, you may experience color loss/bleeding. Hand wash separately with cold water and mild detergent. The edges of tenugui towels are seamless, meaning the weft (horizontal thread) at either end will fray with use. Trim any loose strings with scissors. This process will stop after a small fringe forms.
