A traditional Japanese cotton cloth with many uses!  The wave-like uneven stripes of this design give a soft impression and the bright green colour brings a modern, fresh feel.

These 100% cotton cloths are called 'tenugui' and are a very traditional Japanese item.  These ones are printed using a traditional and unique 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 (or selvage) edges down the long sides and raw cut edges on the short sides.  This means that 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.  But in Japan it has many additional uses including being worn as a headband or belt. 

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