Nijiyura cotton Tenugui cloth, hand-dyed by a traditional Chusen technique.

Tenugui are multi-purpose cotton cloths that can be used to wrap bento boxes (lunch boxes) or gifts, serve as napkins, be worn as an accessory (scarf or bandana), as interior decoration and in many other ways.

Tenugui literally means "hand dry", but despite being traditionally used for this purpose, they are delicate and beautifully decorated.

Nijiyura tenugui are hand dyed using the traditional Chu-sen method developed in Osaka during the Meiji era. Since this period, tenugui have also been widely used in many traditional Japanese performing arts.
