Care instructions:


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

- Fringed edges

The edges of Tenugui are left uncut. The reason is that it dries quickly and is hygienic, and is an everyday fabric. At first, when you wash your Tenugui, you will see some loose threads, but you can cut them with scissors. You can trim the excess thread with a pair of scissors, and the fraying will disappear and the fringes will settle.
