Item details

This elegant tenugui features ornamental carp in a pond on a snowy day. It has a rich blue base.

It's about 91cm x 36cm(35.83" x14.17").

This tenugui is part of a selection that I'm offering from RAAK. This venerable company was founded in 1615 and specializes in tenugui that feature striking designs on high quality cotton. They're dyed in the same tradition as kyo-yuzen kimono, which makes them resistant to fading.

I have another koi motif tenugui from RAAK here:


Tenugui are traditional Japanese cotton cloths. They were originally used as hand towels and head bands, but are used today mainly in craft projects and as room accents and come in a variety of motifs. Tenugui of this fine quality are often framed, and if you have the chance to come to Japan, do go to see these framed and on display in the shops, it's a real treat! Take yours to your local frame store and select a frame that will suit your space, and you'll enjoy this for years to come.

If you've purchased my furoshiki wrapping cloths, please note that tenugui cotton is a plain weave that is lighter that the fabric used for most of my furoshiki, and it is flat, with a plain texture, more similar to the sort of fabric used for bandanas.

And good news for folks in the U.S.!

Thanks to your support our California office for domestic orders is up and running and this tenugui is in stock.

Get it fast via USPS and rest assured with tracking and insurance already included in the price.

Thanks for visiting!
