A tenugui, which is a thin cotton hand-towel, can be used for a washcloth, dishcloth, headband, souvenir or decoration. It is typically about 350 mm X 90 mm in size, and plain weaved. And it is almost always printed with some pattern, which shows a variety of traditional Japanese style in patter. This book features 103 tenugui along with Kouta, which is a kind of poem and can be usually sung with Shamisen, a Banjo-like traditional Japanese instrument. Beautiful patterns must attract broad audience from designers and creative people to Kimono fans and people who like Japanese motifs.
