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!

How to tie Tenugui? Adorable photo from The Gordon School .

We received adorable photos from The Gordon School! The pre-school students enjoyed the Tenugui in Mrs. Dumville’s class. Mrs. Dumville showed them how to wear, how to wrap.. And then all students have come up with many different uses for Tenugui ? a bed for their pet, wrapping up a doll or toy, using Tenugui on the table, etc… I believe that the children are GEMSTONE. They have millions billions possibilities in their brain. Art and Music are very important education for them to discover their creativities. I hope that all children will be able to get?more support for their education under any circumstance. And wish we could give more oppotinity to discover and provide their artistic talents.., They are our precious GEMSTONES…

My tenugui shows pictures of earrings, rings, and blacelets.

Jewelry is a favorite accessory of mine. When you put images of accessories on an accessory, like this Tenugui, it makes it much more unique!
