Japanese Tenugui Cotton Gauze Fabric 33x90 cm Happi Coat (T38) by FromJapanWithLove

5.00 USD

This hand Towel is called a "tenugui". A Tenugui (手拭い) is a thin Japanese hand towel made of cotton. It is typically plain woven and is almost always dyed with some pattern. It can be used for anything a towel could be used for - as a washcloth, dishcloth, but often as a headband, souvenir or decoration. Towels made from terry cloth have replaced many of its use in the household. However tenugui are still popular as souvenirs, decorations, and as a head covering in kendo, where it functions as a sweatband, as extra padding beneath the headgear (men), and to identify the participants by team color.

These are "happi" coats. They are traditional straight armed coats that usually have a "mon" or family crest. They are usually only worn to festivals.

It is 33 cm x 90 cm and is 100% cotton. It is gauze like. The edges are finished.
