Baby blue, eye-catching geometric patterns of asanoha (hemp leaves) adorn this handsome towel. This traditional hexagonal pattern you may see on kimonos and washi paper is believed to bring a healthy and long life to its user. Whether you're a hemp enthusiast, or appreciate classic design, you can't go wrong with this oshare (fashionable) tenugui.

Oshare is right! These tenugui are made with 100% cotton and are so soft. A real joy to hold and feel between your fingers. While tenugui are typically used as a light-duty tea towel or as decoration, these tenugui have a thicker, near-terry weave that will come in handy in tenugui "extended technique." Use this as a handy sweat rag when doing yard work, for face-washing, wiping your coffee or tea station, or as a clever bandana.  

Please note: colors may run during the first couple of washes, so be sure to wash separately with cold water to avoid color bleeding.
