In 2014 we visited on foot the 88 buddhist temples along the Shikoku pilgrimage in Japan. In the first temple we were given our first ever tenugui, a humble looking handkerchief with traditional prints.
It was during this adventure that we discovered its versatility, from drying towel in the spa-onsen to accessory around the neck for the sushi dinner evenings. Since then, we always carry a tenugui in the bag.
Our tenuguis have the original and modern design by Keith Khan printed by the traditional chusen dyeing method.
They are made using Japanese cotton and unfinished on the edges to allow for faster drying and softer touch.
