Sending love with Tenugui... Happy Holidays!!!

Sending love with Tenugui... Happy Holidays!!!

We have received many requests to carry Furoshiki from Tenugui fans. I hesitated a while… because, we are a Tenugui Special Online Store. Well… Why not?? “Customers are always right!”
So, here we go! We have started carrying Furoshiki now.

What is the difference between Tenugui and Furoshiki?
Tenugui is a 100% cotton rectangular cloth, and is used for wiping, wrapping, wearing, and many more ways. Tenugui width is between 34 to 38cm, and the length is between 90 to 120cm.
Furoshiki is a square cloth, made of many different materials, such as silk, cotton, hemp, rayon or polyester. Furoshiki can be used for wrapping and carrying items, but not for wiping and wearing like Tenugui.

Holiday gift season comes now. These are my gift ideas for Tenugui fans!
Christmas color mame-shibori just arrived, how about sending a forrest green and a berry red tenugui as a set like a photo? or you can make a heart with two tenugui also!

Do you know about “Mottainai”?
“Mottainai” means “Don’t Waste” in Japanese, it’s the way to describe conserving the environment.
3R (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle) + Respect = Mottainai, as stated by Wangari Maathai ph.D, Furoshiki and Tenugui can support your own way of Mottainai Campaign, saving the environment for our children’s future.

These are gift wrapping ideas with Tenugui and Furoshiki (Please check HOW TO USE at out site). You can save wrapping paper, tapes, wrapping tissues… and many more “one time use” wrapping items, and also your friends and families can use it after they’ve opened their gifts! Not only that, you can save much more money too!

Let’s start our own way of Mottainai Campaign for our world!

Happy Holidays, Tenugui Fans!!!!!

A short story about Ruri and Tenugui on the NY Japion

A short story about Ruri and Tenugui on the NY Japion

A short story about myself and Tenugui was in the Japanese weekly newspaper NY Japion on April 17, 2009. You will find the article on their website now. Please click here to visit ejapion web-site!

people and people and more people... in the sheep meadow, Central Park

people and people and more people... in the sheep meadow, Central Park

I went to Central Park last Sunday with my dear friend. The weather had jumped to summer suddenly… It’s still end of April, but all New Yorkers can’t wait till summer! I surely enjoyed a moment of sunshine with my Tenugui there… and oops.
It’s very hard to adjust body temperature during this season in New York… from 90F (32℃) to 45F (7℃). This is not my plan, but I got a sore throat, runny nose… knock knock… who is there?
Oh well…. I got a cold!

my favorite matzo ball soup - uses a Tenugui as a table napkin

my favorite matzo ball soup using a Tenugui as a table napkin

Do you know matzo ball? Matzo ball is Jewish traditional dumpling (no meat in it) usually served in chicken stock. The first time I had a matzo ball soup was in the Metro Diner?on my birthday two years ago. Since then, I am a big fan of Matzo Ball Soup! I have found many country’s own cuisine, and also different cultures since I moved to NY. Surely makes me feel that I live in the Melting Pot! Finding new things, foods, cultures, languages… are very interesting to me. To knowing the differences will help to understand others who have different backgrounds. And I believe that the knowledge will UNITED us…?Anyway…. let’s stop my mumbling here…
a cup of matzo ball soup?, Tenugui and a spice of LOVE… were the best medicines for me when I was sick.

The news tells us about swine flu all day long. It’s very important to know and understand the right information and how to deal with the environment around you. Please keep your immune system up, and take good care of yourself… I do same things, too!? Take care, everybody!
