Tenugui cloths are traditional 100% cotton, hand-dyed multi-functional Japanese textiles often used as table napkins, cleaning cloths, tea towels, gift wrapping, decoration, twisted and worn as scarf, or even adorned on the head like a Japanese sushi chef. Most recently, tenugui cloths are being used with great frequency as face masks and face coverings - a video tutorial on how to make a no-sew face mask can be found here:
The edges of the tenugui are left raw and unfinished to allow the cloth to dry quickly when hand-washed. After repeat washing and cutting, the edges will develop a fanned out, frayed edge that is a cherished feature of these towels.
Because tenugui are hand dyed, we recommend hand washing for the first several times to prepare them for eventual machine wash.
