So easy to dry your body, and get sands off!

Believe or not, Tenugui is enough size to dry your body, and not only that, because tenugui is made with a cloth, has no loops, so sands didn’t stick on surface of tenugui, came off so easy!

Tenugui dries super fast!

Tenugui dries super fast!

And one more great things about Tenugui, dries so fast in 15-min!

Japan Art Matsuri 2008 at Greenpoint Brooklyn

Japan Art Matsuri 2008 at the Polish & Slavic Center Greenpoint Brooklyn photo by Motoyuki Ishibashi

We joined Japan Art Matsuri 2008 (JAM2008) last November in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. JAM is an annual Japanese contemporary festival that is organized by Faune Dance Trope, who were celebrating 6th season. Many talented Japanese performers such as musicians, dancers, and artists who live in New York get together and share their amazing performances. This was our first show with JAM and we are so proud of ourselves to be their Tenugui vendor. I surely enjoyed showing our Tenugui Art and watching such energetic performances with an audience. It was the most remarkable Japanese festival for talented young artists in New York.
I would like to thank very much the Faune Dance Trope and JAM supporters that gave us a great opportunity. And many thanks to all the performers and the audience for sharing your great spirit with us… and bringing me a big smile!

kimono de Night at NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts

Kimono de Night is a monthly event that is organized by Feather Stone LLC ( Kumi Haneishi/President ). Most of the event members are Ms. Haneishi’s students and have taken lessons “HOW TO WEAR KIMONO YOURSELF”. Kimono is part of Japan’s great culture, that has many traditional values as well as complicated rules. It sounds silly but most of my generation can’t wear Kimono by ourselves even though we grew up in Japan. That was true for myself until I met Kumi-sensei.
She creates these events for the Kimono Lovers in New York to enjoy the Art of Kimono and also to encourage them to wear it themselves. So, we get together once a month with our beautiful Kimonos and have dinner or go to see performances like Opera, Dance, or even a comedy show. I always enjoy her events with my kimono, that has been handed down in my family that have many memories and stories. For instance, my mother wore it when she visited her future mother-in-law (my grandma) the first time, my aunt wore it when she came to see new born baby (me), and my grandmother wore it when she attended the ceremony of my grandfather’s receiving emperor’s medal… all Kimono are so special for me. And see! I use my Tenugui on my Kimono collar and enjoy my own style now. I am sure my Kimono is smiling the same as I do… and Yes, here in New York!

My dearest Kumi-sensei and Me! <br>I use my Tenugui on my Kimono collar as a new style.

My dearest Kumi-sensei and Me! I use my Tenugui on my Kimono collar as a new style.

January 20, 2009… It was a moment of history in the United State. I don’t like to watch too much TV, because it is too much information to me and also so negative. But I watched all day during inauguration and saw big shinny smile on all of America’s face. We all have many difficult problems and bad days in the midst of crisis. But I do believe that each of our SMILES will help us bring HOPE to pursue the new coming days…

Tenugui mumbling vol.03 – Will you be one of the first 15?

Friday, July 13th, 2007

mame-shibori (pea-dot) tenugui

What’s happening?

I just noticed myself that we say “What’s happening?” here in New York instead say “Hi” when we see friends. Yes, We always have many opportunities and the things are happening here in New York.

We have a FANTASTIC offer to celebrate the opening our web-site!! The first 15 customers to purchase our products on-line before 15 August will receive a FREE wuhao original mame-shibori (pea-dot) Tenugui! This is a $15 value so hurry up and get your order in to us!

Mame-shibori is the most common print pattern of Tenugui. Sushi-chef often wears it like a headband in Sushi Bars. Mame means “Beans” in Japanese and “Shibori” means “Wring”. This very popular pea-dots print has a long history. The traditional mame-shibori (called Itajime Shibori) requires a highly trained technician as the fabric is folded several times and then put between carved wooden boards. The fabric now tightly bound and compressed by these boards. The technique is very old, going as far back as 700 AD. Our original mame-shibori was arranged with our logo in the style of Itajime Shibori and we think it has a lovely taste.

Enjoy your summer with buddies, family, yourself and with wuhao Tenugui!

So? Who will be the lucky 15-customers? YOU? or YOU?
