This Star Wars tenugui eatures Darth Vader in front of the iconic red lantern at the 'Kaminarimon' gate at Sensouji Temple in the Asakusa district of Tokyo.
It's about 34cm wide and 90cm long(13.39" x 35.43").
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 of officially licensed Star Wars motifs that I'm offering. You can find them all in the Star Wars Tenugui section of my shop here:
I did a double take when I first saw this and the other designs I've listed separately, and then it made perfect sense- George Lucas has always cited Japanese cinema as a major influence!
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.
