Scott Kippenbrock - the great man in universe

Scott Kippenbrock - the great man in the universe

Today is a very special day for Kippenbrock family and friends…

Scott was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in 2002 while living in Shanghai, China with me. After a lengthy but courageous battle with this insidious disease, he passed away October 11th, 2005 in Texas.

He always made people laugh and smile in any circumstance… in the subway station, airport, bar, restaurant, work, hospital… and of course our home. It was very important for him to “Make You Happy”, and so, he was very happy himself to receive smile from others. It’s a very simple way to be happy, “If you are happy, I am happy”.

Since he went to Heaven, our family and friends have been moving on to next stage of our life in many different places in the world. I know sure that he is always watching over us, cheers us up, and make us smile in many different ways…

I always think that I want to be a person like him… strong, warm and has a big heart and love…
And I would like to “Make You Happy” through Tenugui and my web site.

For Scott Kippenbrock… You are a great man in the universe…

Kanpai!

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

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?
