I am a Blue Dot Tenugui Cloth. I’m a jack-of-all-trades. Handy, versatile and there when you need me most.
Tenugui cloths have an incredible history dating back to the ancient Kofun period in Japan. Silk versions were once common for religious Shinto ceremonies and cotton for samurai who needed a barrier between their helmets that would prevent sweat from blocking their vision. The unfinished edges made it easier to rip when samurai needed bandages for their wounds, and also made it ideal for wringing out and speeding up the cloth’s drying process. Today they are widespread, admired for their artistic appeal as well as their multi-purpose function. They can be used for anything from kitchen cloths, head wraps and wall hangings to gift wrapping, napkins and even as pocket squares. The traditional ‘Mame Shibori’ print adds a fun aspect and the possibilities are endless!
