Products Description

Tenugui (head towels)


Tenugui is a traditional Japanese cotton cloth that is used as a handkerchief.
The Japanese word "tenugui" translates into "to wipe hands." While tenugui is used for wiping hands, it is also wrapped around the forehead in summer to absorb sweat or around a hat to prevent direct exposure to the sun.
This traditional Japanese item can be used in a variety of ways, including as a bandage for injuries.


The fabric used is a traditional Japanese fabric known as kogin. We use a cotton fabric called "Chita momen" from Aichi Prefecture to make our tenugui.
To avoid stressing the fabric, we use old shuttle looms from the Meiji period to weave our products. This method gives the tenugui a unique texture. The fabric is then bleached with a method called wazarashi, where the woven fabric is placed in large pots and gradually bleached by boiling it for four whole days without putting unnecessary stress on the fabric. The result is soft and fluffy fabric that has not been subjected to unnecessary physical stress.
The product dimensions are 35cm×90cm and 36cm×90cm, while sizes of 35cm×100cm and 36cm×100cm are also available for wrapping around the forehead in kendo and other sports.
Very few factories in Japan are able to produce tenugui in full color, and this is one of the products that our company takes the most pride in.
We can produce tenugui featuring any design you like.
This can be sold at souvenir stores, as event merchandise (such as concert merchandise) or movie merchandise, and on the webshops of creative artists.

Company Profile

We were founded in 1954 in Aichi Prefecture, the main center of cotton fabric production in Japan.
Our main specialty here as a fabric printer is in cotton fabrics.
We utilize screen printing, reactive dye ink-jet printing, and sublimation transfer printing for our print work with hand towels, happi coats, furoshiki wrapping cloth, banners, and other products.
With reactive dye ink-jet printing and sublimation transfer printing, we can print for small lot production as well, which eliminates the need for keeping large inventories, and it's possible to make the exact amount that has been sold.
The mass disposal of clothing and apparel is now a recognizable global issue, and eco-friendly dyeing methods are compatible with Sustainable Development Goals.
Up until now the standard for fabric production was set at 1,000 meters or more, which made inventory build-up a constant risk. Ink-jet printing doesn't require separate prints for each color, so it's possible to print directly on the fabric as long as there is digital data available.
Furthermore, we still hold on to the legacy of traditional Japanese dyeing techniques. Our work is uncompromising when it comes to presenting traditional Japanese colors using color proofing techniques that have been cultivated over many years. We have a young generation of Japanese artisans here who have inherited techniques to craft traditional products.
For every part of the process from fabric printing to sewing products and packaging, we do it all here in-house.
This means that we can make the exact amount of fabric that we need, and not only that we can do small lot production for hand towels, happi coats, and other products.
