Cotton Japanese Tenugui Cloth 'surreal Geisha' Motif For Sale
If you buy more than
one tenugui or furoshiki design, to get the flat rate shipping special detailed below, please wait for me to make a single combined invoice with
the adjusted shipping total before you pay. 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. 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!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.
Airmail anywhere in the world is just $3. Please check out my other listings for more tenugui as well as a large selection of furoshiki! These make great gifts, and I'm offering a special
flat rate shipping charge, too. Buy more than one tenugui or small
furoshiki that ship for $3 each, and you'll pay a flat
$3 shipping for all of them. Add a large furoshiki that ships for
$5.00, and the shipping will remain $5.00 no matter how many tenugui, large and
small furoshiki you buy.
Thanks for looking!
