Dyed using the Sosogizome technique: also called Chûsen this is a traditional dyeing method originating from the Meiji era, where the dye is poured by hand over the cotton cloths. This allows to get the design permeating the fabric, so that it can be seen clearly on both sides.

Notice: tenugui are never hemmed.

A tenugui is a piece of dyed cotton cloth which has always been an essential tool for the Japanese. It was used as a wiping tool such as a towel or a handkerchief, or a headwear. It also came to be used in the place of a greeting card.
Recently people have found even more ways to use it, from place mats to tapestry for decorating their homes.
