Tenugui is Japanese towel, and the record of its use from A.D. 700 is found in old literature.

   Almost all Japanese are said to have carried it around habitually.

   Tenuigui is the textile of 100% cotton and thin, and the ends of its cloth are rough-hewn. Because, that makes itself convenient to carry around, quick to dry, and  hygienic. If the ends of tenugui become frayed, please cut them with scissors or make a fringe.

   Tenugui has various purposes: a hand towel, a dishcloth, a place mat, a scarf, a headband, decorating a wall like a tapestry, wrapping a gift, and so on. If you have other good ideas, please let me know.
