Grass Tenugui

Graphic “Bluegrass”




The Japanese word tenugui derives from te (hand) and nugui (wipe), with a tradition of use dating back to the 8th century. (Some things cannot be improved upon.)

Simple lengths of  hand-printed cotton measuring about 13” x 36”, tenuguis have always been common in Japanese homes because of their multiplicity of uses: drying dishes, setting the table, bandaging, warming a neck, gift-wrapping or an improvised Easter egg housing — you get the idea.
