The story...

Tenugui

Tenugui have been produced in Japan for centuries. Though the literal translation is ‘hand towel’, te means ‘hand’ and nugui is ‘to wipe’, these simple cotton cloths can be used for a variety of purposes – from wrapping to cleaning or wearing as an accessory. Tenugui come in a rich variety of patterns and colours and grow softer with each wash.
