Tenugui (Multi Purpose Cotton Cloths)
Tenugui rule #1: There are no rules!
These towels are 100% cotton and hand dyed so the patterns appear on both sides. Use them as table napkins, to wipe glasses, to hide cords, to wrap gifts, decorations or even as head bands like many sushi chefs in Japan do. The end of the tenuguis are left unfinished so they dry quickly, making them ideal for drying everything and anything. After repeated washing, the edges will develop a fanned out edge that is a cherished, signature feature of these towels. To care for these tenguis, we recommend hand washing for the first several times to prepare them for eventual machine wash.
