This fun tenugui features an epic mashup, with Godzilla wreaking havoc in a classic scene often referred to as The Great Wave' in English by the woodblock print master Hokusai, perhaps the most well-known Japanese woodblock print in the west.
As unfortunate sailors are tossed in the air with their boat reduced to splinters, cherry blossoms flutter in the breeze, testament to the transience of life.
It's 100% cotton and is about 34cm wide and 90cm long(13.39" x 35.43"). And like all my items it's made in Japan.
I have a similar design on navy without the cherry blossoms, please check that listing out if you prefer navy here:
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.
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.!
