We added newly 29 vintage designs tenugui. Many of these designs come from old tenugui design templates that used to be popular around 1950-1960's. These templates have been kept at the tenugui factory. These designs are calm, peaceful, but still beautiful.
These tenugui are manufactured by a hand-dyeing factory in Takasaki city (in Gunma Prefecture), approximately 80km north west of Tokyo. These products are only sold at stores within the city or through the domestic web store that is managed by the factory. So, it is the first time for these tenugui to be shipped internationally. Although the products are local, they are high quality - this tenugui factory is awarded for traditional craft skill keeper by Gunma Prefecture local governmnet.
Please take a look some of the designs from the lineup:
|Bamboo and plum flowers|
|Rabbits and the moon in autumn|
|Kanji characters describing battle standards|
|Daruma dolls with umbrella, but the last one with a tenugui|
|Seven herbs in autumn|
|Rabbits running around mountain|
