Japanese pink and white ume plum blossom patterned Tenugui cotton - by the yard


This listing is for one yard (36 inches or 91.33cm) of fabric. There are multiple yards available. If more than one yard is purchased then you will receive the entire yardage as one complete length.

This tenugui (Japanese hand-towels) fabric features a pattern of pink ume (plum blossoms) over a white background.

The fabric can be used for numerous things including: towels, face wipes, sweat bands, cleaning, dusting, gift wrapping, fruit and vegetable bags and decorative wall hangings. The uses are endless! Tenugui cloth is especially good for dusting electronics or cleaning eyeglasses as the cotton is lint free. The cloth can even be used for quilting and "boro" style patchwork designs.

The fabric is lightweight to allow the tenugui to dry quickly. The fabric has a gauzy feel and look with a slightly open weave. The open weave can be most easily seen in the 9th photograph. The fabric is slightly starched but should become more soft and fluid after washing.

Refer to the last photo for the most accurate representation of the color. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the photo for a color comparison.
