Hand towel or TENOGUI became popular in Japan with the spread of use of cotton in the Edo period. Among the hand towels made that time, those made by Edo artisans with patterns of ukiyo-e and kabuki were especially appreciated for their refined design.
This item is hand perfected by EDO SHOKUNIN or Edo artisan/craftsmen who has long carried over the traditional Edo workmanship style and techniques. Each piece is died layer by layer and all are handmade. Original pattern has been sculpted for this design.
On the left corner of the towel, the artist’s (Kenshin Art of waR) seal has been stamped one by one by hand. Also the contrastive colors of vermilion and navy have been dyed skillfully by hand-work.
As a daily necessity, although hand towels are very useful with its high absorbency but they are also widely used as interior goods or wrapping material.
