Tenugui with Kabu Turnip (986)
Kabu is the Japanese name for turnip. Next to a popular ingredient in Japanese pickles, the kabu pattern has been used since the Edo period as a lucky charm. "Tenugui" is often translated as "Japanese towel", but this translation fails to cover their versatility and cultural significance. Tenugui are not only used as hand towels and handkerchiefs, but also function as fashion items, gift wrapping, souvenirs, sweat bands and padding (e.g. in the martial arts kendo), and of course as decorative items due to their often beautiful, funny or nostalgic patterns.
Please be aware that tenugui cloth by default are never hemmed, which allows them to dry very quickly.
