Item details

This hand towel is called a "tenugui". A Tenugui (手拭い) is a thin Japanese hand towel made of cotton. It is typically plain woven and is almost always dyed with some pattern. It can be used for anything a towel could be used for - as a washcloth, dishcloth, but often as a headband, souvenir or decoration. Towels made from terry cloth have replaced many of its use in the household. However tenugui are still popular as souvenirs, decorations, and as a head covering in kendo, where it functions as a sweatband, as extra padding beneath the headgear (men), and to identify the participants by team color.

It is 35 cm x 87 cm and is 100% cotton.

>>> Important note re: Shipping for multiple items: The shipping cost shown for your country is for the first item only - the cost is discounted when you buy more than one item. To see costs for multiple items, go to your cart for combined shipping.

• Shipping covers all cost of 'shipping and handling'

I apologize for the confusing way Etsy has chosen to display the shipping costs. Unfortunately Etsy has removed the option to easily see costs.

Shipping And Handling: I want the packages to arrive in perfect condition and they have a long way to travel so my assistant is very careful when she packs your items. We have been left happy comments by customers thanking us for the way our assistant Michiyo packaged their items. At this time, all items will be sent “small package” air mail so tracking is not possible and there is no insurance. Please note that we are not responsible for customs fees nor can we advise about the rules regarding customs fees for any country.

We ship 2-3 times a week. I will email/convo you after I ship your package so you know it is on the way. Just a note: If you place an order on a Thursday or Friday, given the time differences and my schedule, I won't likely be able to send your package until the following Tuesday.

As of May 31st 2008, all orders over $100 will be automatically upgraded to EMS so there will be tracking and insurance. All EMS packages will be sent on Thurdays or Fridays. I will email you the tracking number after I send the package.


We only accept paypal.

Returns & exchanges

If you don't receive your package after 5 weeks, please email us and together we will work it out.
