This Tenugui is produced using the Arimatsu Shibori technique, each pattern on it is done by knotting the cloth before dyeing it in order to create these vegetal drawings. The design is very simple and elegant, two characteristic that are often found in Japanese traditional art crafts.
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.
