Japanese tenugui cloth in 100% cotton with asanoha pattern
As decorative as it is practical, the tenugui is above all a fine example of traditional Japanese craftsmanship. This fine cotton towel is tightly woven and highly absorbent. It is used in thermal baths to dry hands and face. When working outdoors, it is tied around the head to absorb sweat. At home, it can be used to wipe dishes or decorate furniture. Here, the asanoha pattern is a symbol of vitality and strength, just like the hemp leaves that inspire it.
Note: tenugui is a strip of fine cotton fabric, generally measuring 35 by 90 cm. It has no folds or hems, so it dries quickly. If the edges of your tenugui start to fray, trim any protruding threads with a pair of scissors.
