These humble cloths date back to the Heian era (794-1192 AD). Worn for summer festivals, kendo practice and even used as props for storytellers, tenugui are an important part of Japanese culture and history.

  • Tenugui edges are purposely seamless for better hygiene and quick drying. After a few washes, you may find that the cloth has frayed. Use a pair of scissors to trim the loose threads. The more you use the cloth, the more the edges will stop fraying due to the tightening of the the fabric.
