Tenugui dries super fast!

Tenugui mumbling Vol.98 – TENUGUI MISANGA

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Tenugui was cut to each piece by hands.

Heat Wave arrive in New York City…. hope you are doing well.

Finally, after a long time, of thinking and planning, I am introducing TENUGUI MAGIC!
Tenugui is multi functional, with so many possibilities to use, and change style. I have had so many ideas and projects in mind?for a long time, and finally one idea came true….. TENUGUI MISANGA DEBUT!

Tenugui?is still made mostly by hand. My favorite Chusen Dye has used the same method for hundreds of years. Washi paper stencil, molding, pasting, dyeing… all process is made by hand, and also cutting tenugui to each piece (photo above).
When we cut tenugui, there is always some excess of cloth. I was wondering what I could make? from these odds and ends of cloth? I just wanted to give new life to these little pieces of Tenugui….

TENUGUI MISANGA debut!

TENUGUI MISANGA debut!

Tenugui mumbling Vol.96 – Make a wish – Tenugui Tanzaku

Friday, June 24th, 2011
Tanzaku is a Wish Tag for Tanabata Festival

Tanzaku is a Wish Tag for Tanabata Festival

July 7th is a Tanabata Festival in Japan, also called Star Festival. The story of Tanabata came from an ancient Asian folk legend about the Cow Herder Star (Altair) and his lover the Princess Weaver Star (Vega), who had been banished by her father to opposite ends of the Milky Way, doomed to meet each other but once a year at this time. If it rains that night and the stars cannot be seen, the lovers must wait another year to be re-united.

Each summer in Japan, children and their parents prepare for the festival by writing their wishes on Tanzaku, narrow strips of colored paper and hanging them with other paper ornaments on bamboo branches displayed at the entrance to the their homes. Everyone prays that the sky will be fair, the lovers will meet, and their wishes will be granted.

I made Tanzaku with Japanese 5-Yen coins last Tanabata. 5-yen coin has many good meanings. We call it Goen, which means good relationship. The first 5-yen was printed in 1949, it has three symbols on the face of coin, and one on the other side. Rice as Agricultures, Gear as Industry, Stripes (wave) as Fishery Industry, and new leaves as Forestry. It was designed with Wishes of reconstruction and development of Japan.

I made 5-yen Tanzaku for you all this year also. Any tenugui order until July 7th (Thursday), you’ll receive a 5-yen Tanzaku with your Tenugui.
Or any tenugui fans who want to have 5-yen Tanzaku, please send email to mail@wuhaonyc.com , I’ll send you one for your wish come true.

What is your wish year 2011?

 Love You

Tenugui mumbling Vol. 95 – Tenugui Magic Vol.05 How to use Tenugui by Sommelier Style

Tenugui Magic Vol.05 – How to use TENUGUI by Sommelier Style from Ruri Kippenbrock (wuhaonyc) on Vimeo.

I visited Yasu-san at 15 EAST (15 E. 15th street, NYC) Japanese Restaurant the other day. Yasu-san always supports me and Tenugui since I started my own company in 2007.

After his long career in his food service business in New York, he went to Los Angeles and expolered new location?a few years. And now he came back to New York, and challenging his new carrea in 15 EAST. His excellent service is always touched my heart very deeply. I’ll definately go anyplace he’ll be for my very special day!

He shows me “How to use Tenugui by Sommelier Style” on this movie. Tenugui is a perfect cloth to dry and shine luxury glassware. Yasu-san said; Tenugui is a very simple and great cloth to wipe a glass, because you don’t need to wipe it twice. Tenugui absorbs all moisture, and fine fibers don’t stick on the glass. Usually, he have to use two different kitchen cloths to wipe a glass, one for dry and one for shine, but not with Tenugui!

Thank you Yasu-san for sharing this great technique with us, and thank you very much for your support of Tenugui and me always!!!!
