“Tenugui” is a type of traditional Japanese towel, and can be used for anything a towel could be used for – as a washcloth, dishcloth, but often as a headband, souvenir, decoration, or for wrapping items such as bottles.

Plum Park in Kameido (亀戸梅屋舗, Kameido Umeyashiki) is a woodblock print in the ukiyo-e genre by the Japanese artist Hiroshige. It was published in 1857 as the thirtieth print in the One Hundred Famous Views of Edo series and depicts Prunus mume trees in bloom.

The print shows part of the most famous tree in Edo, the "Sleeping Dragon Plum", which had blossoms "so white when full in bloom as to drive off the darkness" and branches that travelled looping across the ground like a dragon to emerge as further trunks over an area of 50 feet square. The tree is shown with a unique abstract composition, with wide branches taking up much of the foreground but cropped by the frame of the picture giving a resemblance to Japanese calligraphy. Visible between the branches of the Sleeping Dragon Plum are further trees and small figures behind a low fence contemplating the plum blossom. A sign, possibly forbidding vandalism, is in the foreground at the top left of the image. The image uses Hiroshige's exaggerated single-point perspective whereby the closest objects in view are increased in size and the use of the unnatural red sky has the effect of flattening the visible space.

"Rien-zome" brand created by an authentic Tenugui producer named TODAYA SHOUTEN located at Ningyo-cho, Tokyo. They have been producing wide variety of Tenugui since 1872. They focus on traditional hand-dyeing method called "Chu-sen". Also they keep many great designs for years. Enjoy Rien-zome Tenugui handmade by skilled artisans!

“Chusen” is a traditional method of dyeing using stencil paper. Since the dye infiltrates the cloth, the patterns appear on both sides. When the tenugui is used for a long period of time, the dye fades, giving it a well-aged look.
