Japanese Tenugui are hand towels made from cotton scraps. Over time, the uses of these Tenugui had since expanded for interior decoration, as place mats or wrapper. There are many ways Tenugui are made today, yet, the ones which are dyed using the tradition method of Chu-sen are prized. Dyes of different colours are poured layers by layers to create a print that is not achievable by digital printing. This Carp Tenugui by NAKAMURA DYEING FACTORY is one such print. Based in Gunma, the factory still uses the traditional injection dyeing method to to produce their Tenugui, a method passed down since the Meiji era.
