Japanese cotton tenugui towel, seigaiha pattern
The versatile Japanese tenugui towel is used daily by the Japanese. It can be found in onsen thermal baths, on the heads of festival-goers or Kendo practitioners, in the kitchen, in fashion... It's loved everywhere for its fine, strong cotton fabric, high absorbency and rectangular shape. A Japanese motif par excellence, seigaiha represents the waves of a calm sea, a symbol of power and quiet strength.
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, cut any protruding threads with a pair of scissors.
