Tenugui Cloth: Beer Glasses

£9.00 each
1 item in stock

What's better than a cold refreshing beer at the end of a long day?  I hope these full glasses aren't making you thirsty!

These 100% cotton cloths are called 'tenugui' and are a very traditional Japanese item.  These ones have a cool beer glass design and are printed in indigo blue with yellow highlights.  They use a traditional hand-dying method which means that the print looks the same on both sides, ie. there is no wrong side.

The cloth is un-hemmed with selvedge edges down the long sides and raw cut edges on the short sides.  The cut edges will fray a little at first so trim any loose ends with scissors.  Indeed, it is intended that with use over time the fabric will soften and fade giving the tenugui its own character.

Use it as a tea towel or napkin; the thin cotton will dry out quickly and improves with washing.  This one in particular would make a great glass cloth!  But in Japan tenugui have many additional uses including being worn as a headband, bandana or belt.

One interesting use is as a wrapping for presents, similar to 'furoshiki'.  What a lovely additional gift for your host!
