TENUGUI - A quick-drying cotton cloth with a multitude of uses.
A tenugui is a textile with as many applications as its owner can imagine. A longtime fixture in Japanese homes and onsens, the tenugui is a thin cotton cloth that dries extremely quickly, making it a perfect addition to any kitchen or bathroom.
Slightly larger than a face towel, tenugui has been used in numerous ways because of it's high water absorbability and flexibility. Can be used as a washcloth, to wiping off sweat , drying wet hands, a head covering to protect your skin against the sun, etc.
These items are more than simple towels, the Hirali tenugui feature striking patterns created through a one-of-a-kind printing method that produces a unique reversible design available nowhere else.
MATERIALS & CARE
Made in Japan of 100% cotton
Dimensions: 35.43" L x 13.39" W
Care: Hand wash separately from other fabrics, as some color may transfer. Avoid bleach or brightening agents. Hang dry in a shaded spot.
Particularities: Do not pull any loose threads - edges are frayed to allow quicker drying and are antiseptic as bacteria will not be as prone to build up as it would if the cloth had seams; instead, trim with scissors. Note that ironing at a high temperature may cause discoloration.
No seams. Ends are left raw. Ends will fray with time and stop at around 1cm of fraying. Cloth will soften with each wash.
