The textile is most commonly used for any purpose an everyday towel or cloth might be desirable. The Tenugui can replace a washcloth, dishcloth, tablecloth or, due to its simplicity and unique beauty, exclusively for decorative purposes, as a headband, scarf or even for wrapping gifts, bottles, boxes or even food supplies on the go. As it is produced using 100% rugged cotton, the Tenugui washes easily and dries quickly.

It is the traditional characteristic of Tenugui for the raw edge to be left unfinished.
