Ancient Linen Tenugui
279 East 6th Avenue
Vancouver BC V5T 1J7
This is a beautiful tenugui (hand towel) that is made of 100% linen using a traditional technique. Almost like silk, the fabric is lightweight, smooth and gentle to touch. It has excellent water absorption and divergence, and can be kept clean. It dries faster than cotton, so it will come in handy for housekeeping or even traveling. As a handkerchief or towel, or wrap it around your necks like a scarf to protect from the sun during your travels or outdoor activities.
Available in multiple colours that are reminiscent of seasonal moments in Japan.
Natural: Creamy off-white, it appears soothing in summer, warm in winter.
Matcha: Rich green of deep matcha green tea
Yellow: Beautiful bright yellow of Yamabuki (Japanese kerria) that blossom in spring.
Pink: Colour of deep red Tsubaki (camellia flower), a flower of modest splendour.
Tenugui is a thin Japanese hand towel. Typically, tenugui are about 35 by 90 centimetres (14″ x 35′) in size, plain woven lightweight fabric. It may be used as washcloths or dishcloths. Also often used as headbands, decorations, or for wrapping bottles and similar items. Usually the long sides are finished as a selvage, and the short sides are just cut and so will show some fraying. If the loose thread is unraveled, you can trim it with scissors or leave the ends to continue to fray for a natural edge to appear.
Please note that the colour may fade or run when washing. Refrain from using chlorine bleach.
