Japanese tenugui was a daily necessity in the Edo and Meiji periods.

It is being reconsidered in modern life, and it is popular as a wrapping and a gift both in Japan and abroad because it is thin, not bulky, and has various colors and designs.

The design is so attractive that you can decorate it as an art, and it is a waste to use it like a dishcloth.
