Hand-dyed cotton, 5 Different Styles, 13" x 35.4"
Tenugui, the Japanese traditional hand towel, found in every Japanese home, is made of sarashi. During the Heian Period (806 - 1190), tenugui was first used as a personal ornament for religious services. During the Kamakura Period (1190 - 1329), its popularity grew, and in the Edo Period (1615 - 1868), it became a necessity in the home. It's almost nuts how many uses the tenugui have—from sweatband to dishtowel. If you look around while in Japan you will find these towels are used for almost everything. Beyond everything, we think they are also the perfect table napkins.
