Tenugui are traditional Japanese cotton cloths. They were originally used as hand towels and head bands, but are used today mainly as room accents and come in a huge variety of motifs. These would make striking room accents, on a wall or a table. I'm offering a selection of designs that I've chosen based on the work of renowned woodblock print artists and historical figures. These traditional motifs have been printed with care on quality, 100% cotton and are about 100 x 35cm(39.37 x 13.78"). The design in this listing features a scene based on the life of the author of what has become known as the world's first novel, The Tale of Genji(Genji Monogatari), Murasaki Shibu. It shows Heian period court life in the style of her work.If you've purchased my furoshiki wrapping cloths, please note that tenugui cotton is a plain weave that is lighter that the fabric used for most of my furoshiki, and it is flat, with a plain texture, more similar to the sort of fabric used for bandanas. Tenugui are also distinct in that the ends are left unfinished, with the threads loose.Thanks for looking!
