This tenugui hand towel is dyed by authentic traditional hand-dyeing in Kyoto. It is different from what is generally called traditional hand-dyeing.
It is a tenugui towel like no other.
The series include Kyo-Kaera’s original “Dokuro” (skull) design, “Snowman” design, “Hanahotomatsu Four Seasons” design, and “Shikunji” design.
The 45 cm long mini tenugui can be used as a handkerchief or luncheon mat.
The regular type with a length of 90 cm is ideal for use as a scarf in hot weather or as a half collar for kimono lovers.
Or it is also ideal for making masks.
Please enjoy various uses with the unique colors and patterns of authentic hand-dyed tenugui hand towels that you cannot find anywhere else.
Those with a keen eye would see that the there is a design to the wrapping paper as well, so it can be used in turn to make a great gift!
The way the pattern appears is dependent on the location of each cut of fabric and because of the authentic Kyoto-style yuzen hand-dyeing technique itself.
