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!

Here you go!!!!! I braide them to a bracelet… called TENUGUI MISANGA! Hundreds of colors of tenugui pieces, my imagination is getting bigger and bigger.? My little office has changed to a Misanga workshop now :-)

Three styles with tons of colors - All One of kinds!
