Japanese zodiac (2nd) - Ox
Miya-zome retro design conveys gentle and warm feeling. Miya-zome tenugui are beautiful as well as durable for every day use.
The design is crafted by handcarving and hand-dyed with an unique method "Chu-sen". Dyes penetrate deeply to every fabric yarn, and you can clearly see the reverse design image on the backside of the tenugui. Moreover, Chu-sen tenugui removes sweats and water very well even if the design looks decorative. If you compare a Chu-sen tenugui with pigment printed one, you will see the difference. The production process is introduced in the article here. Please enjoy this beautiful tenugui for any occasion.
Notice 1: Every tenugui is folded in a plastic bag for shipping.

About Miya-zome tenugui
"Miya-zome" is a brand name of tenugui produced in Utsunomiya City. "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 production facility established in 1905. Since that time, the tradition has been taken over by the family and stubborn artisans. The facility won an award for the excellent dyeing technique from the prefecture.
