Note 1: Every tenugui is folded in a plastic bag for shipping. We have a less expensive shipping option for just one piece of tenugui purchase (see more).
Note 2: If you are looking for an approximately 100 cm long Kendo Men tenugui, please check the dimensions listed below. Most of our tenugui are 90+ cm long. 90cm length tenugui would be still good for kids and ladies, but 100 cm length may be more suitable for adult men. All of our tenugui are created by "Chu-sen" dye (not pigment printing) method and they remove sweats very well, even if the design looks decorative.

About Miya-zome tenugui
Dyeing factories built in Utsunomiya-city call themselves "Miya-zome". "Miya" is taken from the last syllable of Utsunomiya, the capital city of Tochigi Prefecture, and "zome" means dyeing.
We deal Miya-zome tenugui from a family owned factory established in 1905. Since that time, the tradition has been taken over by the family of stubborn artisans. They once received accolades for their excellent dyeing technique from the local Tochigi Prefecture. The dyeing technique that they use is called "Chu-sen".
Please read our blog article here with the photos of Miya-zome factory.
About "Chu-sen" dye method
Chu-sen dyes every string of tenugui cloths beautifully and makes tenugui design reversible (you can see the mirror image of the design from the back side). Moreover, the Chu-sen tenugui removes sweats and water very well, even if the design looks decorative. If you compare Chu-sen tenugui with pigment-printed one, you can see the difference. Chu-sen tenugui pursue both utilitarian and design purposes.
