The history of the Tenugui

Tenugui is said to date back to the Nara period (710-794). In the Edo period (1603-1868), cotton cultivation began to flourish and Tenugui grew out of the cotton scraps used to make kimonos.

The Tenugui, made of cotton, was durable and easy to use, and it became widely used in people's lives.

There are many ways to use Tenugui. It could be used as a towel or handkerchief, worn on the head as protection from the sun or dust, or in an emergency it could be torn off and used as a bandage or to repair kimono footwear.

It can be cut to the desired length according to the use you want to make. The Tenugui cloth was also useful for hygiene as it dried quickly. The Tenugui was not only used for practical purposes, it was also an elegant fashion item in Edo.

With the passage of time, designs have changed, and modern designs, as well as classic designs from the past, have been used in a wide range of interior and fashion applications.

Care instructions


When you wash your Tenugui for the first time, the color will fade. It is best to wash them separately from whites.

It is safer to wash in hot water, as it loses color easily.

Tenugui is sensitive to direct sunlight and fades quickly, so it's best to dry in the shade.

Even if you won't be using your Tenugui for a long time, you should run it in water before putting it away. This will prevent the fabric from spoiling during long-term storage.

Fringed edges

Tenugui has cut edges. The reason is that it dries quickly and is hygienic for everyday use.

At first, when you wash your Tenugui, you will see some loose threads, but you can trim the excess thread with a pair of scissors, and the fraying will disappear and the fringes will settle.
