KAMAWANU is specialized in the making of TENUGUI, a hand-dyed rectangular cloth traditionally used in Japan as functional everyday housewares / garments. The TENUGUI is created using the "CHUSEN" hand-dyeing technique, which dates back to the Meiji Period more then 100 years ago and is still used by today's craftspeople who value its refined textures and visual qualities. Since its establishment in 1987, KAMAWANU has developed more than 500 different TENUGUI patterns, thus bringing new life to the "CHUSEN" hand-dyeing tradition, including the training of apprentice "CHUSEN" craftspeople.
The fabric of these KOMON Modern pattern TENUGUI is Cotton/Linen Mix which has a texture similar to dish towel and is very durable. The patterns are rather dynamic with two different base colors, off-white and light grey. There are 10 variations in this collection.
We also have framed TENUGUI. Any one of our TENUGUI collection can be framed in a stylish-black, wooden frame. For ordering, please add "F" in front of the product code of the corresponding TENUGUI.
