This listing is for one tenugui cloth. Tenugui are Japanese hand-towels that are used for numerous things including: towels, face wipes, sweat bands, cleaning, dusting, gift wrapping and decoration. The uses are endless! They are especially good for dusting electronics or cleaning eyeglasses as the cotton is lint free.
Traditionally, tenugui are rectangle pieces of cloth with un-hemmed ends. Having un-hemmed ends allows the cloth to dry quickly. This tengui is more of a hybrid between a tenugui and furoshiki (wrapping) cloth as it is square in shape and all sides are hemmed.
Tenugui towels are a similar feel and thickness as a cotton handkerchief. The fabric is lightweight to allow the tenugui to dry quickly. Please note that the black measurement lines from my cutting table can be seen through the fabric of the towel (2nd photo)
This tenugui is vintage, unused stock (deadstock).
The cotton fabric has an adorable dyed pattern of "Le Sucre" bunnies, dogs and flowers in colors of blue, yellow, brown, tan and pink-purple. Some of the bunnies are carrying cakes. There is also writing around the edges and throughout the tenugui. The writing is in the french language. Please see the 5th photo for the best representation of the colors. Crayola brand crayons are shown in the photo for a color comparison.
This furoshiki is 100% cotton. The cotton is light weight and has a flowing drape.
This cloth is about 20 inches x 20 inches (50.8 cm x 50.8 cm) in size. All four sides of the cloth are hemmed.
To keep the pattern of this cloth bright, washing in cold water is recommended. Do not bleach. Hang to dry. The fabric can be ironed on the high cotton, steam setting.
