“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 tapestry, decoration, quilt, headband, souvenir, or for wrapping items such as bottles.

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.
