Modern motifs to celebrate daily life

Whether it is used for packaging goods, wrapping around the neck or drying hands, the tenugui is a practical and versatile textile that is woven into Japanese daily life. Kamawanu celebrates this staple with its high quality dyes and original pattern designs. Established in 1987, Kamawanu uses Chusen hand-dyeing techniques, making each tenugui richly colored and unique. The patterns are designed with a nod to traditional symbols and modern motifs for a timeless aesthetic, ensuring that the tenugui will always have a place in contemporary life.
