Tenugui Japanese Fabric Cotton 'surreal Geisha' Motif For Sale

Tenugui Japanese Fabric Cotton 'surreal Geisha'  Motif


Shipping is free! Your tenugui should get to your door about 2-3 weeks from payment. If you buy more than one item, please use the cart and wait to pay until you finish shopping.


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.
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 unlike furoshiki and western style bandanas, the ends are left unfinished. Because the ends are not sewn, the horizontal threads(the woof) may fray a bit as it's used. If you wash your tenugui or furoshiki, I recommend hand washing for at least the first few times. The raw ends of tenugui will gradually tighten after being washed a few times.These would make striking room accents, on a wall or a table. This one's part of a selection I'm offering by Kenema, a company that strives to create dynamic designs that evoke traditional motifs and culture infused with a modern flair. They're printed with care on quality, 100% cotton and are about 90cm x 36cm(35.43" x 14.17"). This macabre motif is part of a current trend in Japan that melds traditional motifs with sometimes unsettling images of such things as skeletons that convey a sense of humor and lightheartedness along with their dark subject matter. A skeletal geisha applies her make-up, looking at a reflection of her former self, preparing to meet her true love. She's wearing a kimono that features a skull motif, and if you look closely you'll discover that the skulls on her kimono are actually made up of sleeping cats!
Thanks for looking!
