Tenugui mumbling Vol.133 – Sending your Love to Someone Special

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014
Hand-crafted paper is came from Florence, Italy.

Hand-crafted paper is came from Florence, Italy.

We have started free message service, sending a message card to your family, friends, and someone very special with your Tenugui online order. The message card is came from Medioevalis (www.medioevalis.it), Florence, Italy. The Hand crafted paper has one-of-kind hand touch, a soft felted finish on surface. The four corner of edges are carefully and naturally tearing the sheets, that was made same as Italian tradition paper making method back to the 15th century.

I feel that it is much more important to us, to sending a hand-writing card than a electric message, like text or e-card, as much as cyber world grow. One-of-kind and Love, I believe that these two things are connected closely. Let us help you to sending your Love to someone very special!

Our free message service has been continuing 24/7 :-)

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Are you ready for Welcome year 2013?

Thank you very much for your love of Tenugui all year around. I love tenugui very much, … well as you know :-)
This simple rectangular 100% cotton cloth has unlimited possibilities, to design, to use… and each piece has a beautiful story behind it. We can feel changing season, warming holidays, bitter sweet memories… through Tenugui.

Many unexpected things had happened year 2012, many people died… lost their home, family, and friends… because of nature disaster, or human involved…. Many people are struggling to have foods and comforts in the many places. I am hoping that each one of us, will appreciate what we have in our hands, and sharing and giving what we have, and respect one’s life each other.

I always have my favorite tenugui in my hands, to wiping my happy and sad tears… Tenugui always gives me a warm comfort. Me and Tenugui are always together, for coming new year 2013 as well!
Wishing you a Happy New Year, and hoping you have your favorite tenugui in your hands on your good days and bad days, and please remember that? I am thinking about you, and wishing your happiness as always.

Happy New Year, Tenugui Fans!

Using Tenugui as a tea towel

Using Tenugui as a tea towel

We received beautiful photos from Tenugui Fan Blair from San Diego, California. He is a Tea master, and use his Tenugui to handle his tetsubin (Iron tea pot). He said that Tenugui is perfect for holding the hot lid and wiping down a tetsubin to keep it looking great and rust free. He keep one handy for all tea sessions.

Use tenugui to hold a lid of Tetsubin

Use tenugui to hold a lid of Tetsubin

Blair practice Cha-No-Yu, Sencha-Do and Chinese Gongfu-Cha. He use a different seasonal themed tenugui every month to handle his cast iron tea kettle. Tenugui keeps him focused on the moment and the season at hand while protecting his fingers from the hot kettle. He use tenugui with his tetsubin for both japanese Sencha-Do and Chinese Gongfu-Cha as a tea towel.

Surely, Tenugui can use many different ways. Thank you Blair for sharing your Tenugui Story with us. Let’s have a cup of tea, with your Tenugui!

Tenugui mumbling Vol.103 – Jereme Sander’s Story

Sunday, December 18th, 2011

?

Jereme is a Parkour practitioner, a member of the Tribe (Professional Parkour Team) and American Parkour, and also he is a Tenugui fan. You can find him at Tenugui on the street Vol.35 at our site.

Parkour originally came from France, and was used for Military education and training during World War I and II.? The main purpose of the discipline is to teach participants how to move through their environment by vaulting, rolling, running, climbing and jumping…. just like a Ninja!

This video is a story about Jereme Sanders; becoming and working to be a Parkour Traceur is not easy, but his passion and love of Parkour has touched my heart deeply.

It’s a great thing to have what you love most, and living your life doing what you love.
Life has many different forms, and I believe that your love and passion, and thoughts, create your destiny.

Wishing Happy Holidays,?Jereme and ?all Tenugui Fans!

Tenugui mumbling Vol.99 – TENUGUI MAGIC

Sunday, July 31st, 2011
odds and ends tenugui cloth, buttons, and Masaki yarn... my TENUGUI MAGIC WORLD

odds and ends tenugui cloth, buttons, and Masaki yarn... my TENUGUI MAGIC WORLD

?
It has been in my thoughts since I had started my own Tenugui business in 2007, and finally It has arrived…? YES, it’s TENUGUI MAGIC!

I made a few movies showing you how to use Tenugui, and I called?them TENUGUI MAGIC. This 100% cotton rectangular cloth has many more possibilities than imaginable. It’s one of my dreams to create my own tenugui styles, and bring simple pleasures to you through this simple cotton cloth.

I always think about tenugui craftsman?in Japan when I hold tenugui?in my hand. Tenugui is created using the same method since the mid 1800′s, and is still made mostly by hand.? Washi paper stencil, molding, dyeing, washing and drying, and cutting each piece of Tenugui. I feel the tenugui spirit that has been carried along many decades of Japanese history.

TENUGUI MAGIC?is my own brand to provide new tenugui goods, and also, to?introduce you to the usability of Tenugui.? “Mottainai”?means don’t waste, and TENUGUI MAGIC was created along with Japanese economic philosophy, using odds and ends of Tenugui cloth or used tenugui (along with all the memories) reconstructed in various styles, and giving new life to a piece of cloth.
We will remake your favorite old tenugui?into a one of a kind accessory, bag, cover, box, or any other item.

“Reconstruct”, “Remake” and “Respect”….
I would like to express my appreciation to Japanese tradition and artisans.

My plan is to create a new sytle each month. Many more new styles are on the way, so please stay tuned?to TENUGUI MAGIC!
