This striking tenugui features a young maiko apprentice geisha.
It's 100% cotton and is about 100cm x 35cm(39.37" x 13.78").
Tenugui are traditional Japanese cotton cloths. They were originally used as hand towels and head bands, but are used today mainly as room accents and come in a huge variety of motifs.
If you've purchased my furoshiki wrapping cloths, please note that tenugui cotton is a plain weave that is lighter that the fabric used for most of my furoshiki, and it is flat, with a plain texture, more similar to the sort of fabric used for bandanas. Tenugui are also distinct in that unlike furoshiki and western style bandanas, the ends are left unfinished. Because the ends are not sewn, the horizontal threads(the woof) may fray a bit as it's used. If you wash your tenugui or furoshiki, I recommend hand washing. The raw ends of tenugui will gradually tighten after being washed a few times.
