This Tenugui has a wave like indigo blue drawing with two plovers on it, the apparent simplicity of the pattern is actually hiding the very complex process of production for such a product. Completely hand-made this Tenugui needs highly skilled craftsmen to be realized. The two white plovers on the deep blue background give a soft impression and emphasize the color of the dyed cloth.
The Tenugui were first created during the Heian period (AD 794 - 1192), over the years they also became appreciated as artistic objects thanks to their beautiful patterns. The Tenugui are very popular in Japan, they can be used in many different ways such as wiping cloth for glasses, for wrapping presents or even as decorative ornaments. The Tenugui have a soft texture that will along with the color evolve with time.
Takeda Kahei has been producing Arimatsu Shibori products since its establishment in 1872 by Takeda Kahei himself. Yet, the tradition of tie-dyeing technique is much older and was transmitted throughout the generations. Nowadays, Takeda Kahei tries to diversify from producing only Yukata or Tenugui with modern products such as fans, purses and pouches.
