'Tenugui', a traditional Japanese hand towel, is a well loved everyday item in Japan with a rich history. Wonderfully versatile, it can serve many uses from hand or tea towel to scarf, wrapping, interior decoration and seasonal gifts to name a few. Initially used in ceremonies and religious rituals dating back to the 700s, its use gradually became widespread by the Edo period (late 1500s - 1800s) with the increased availability of cotton, advance in fabric making techniques, and the popularisation of public bathhouses.
