Item details

This tenugui features polar bears, penguins, seals and killer whales cavorting in a playful scene.

It's printed with care on quality, 100% cotton and is about 90cm x 36cm(35.43" x 14.17").

Tenugui are traditional Japanese cotton cloths. They were originally used as hand towels and head bands, but are used today mainly as room accents and come in a huge variety of motifs. These would make striking room accents, in projects, or on a wall or a table and would look great framed.

This one's part of a selection I'm offering by Kenema, a company that strives to create dynamic designs that evoke traditional motifs and culture infused with a modern flair.

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, so it might not be as suitable for some fabric projects. And unlike my furoshiki, tenugui are not finished at the ends, threads are left loose.

Because the ends are not sewn, the horizontal threads(the woof may fray a bit as it's used. If you wash your tenugui, I recommend hand washing for at least the first few times. The raw ends of tenugui will gradually tighten after being washed a few times.

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