We have received many requests to carry Furoshiki from Tenugui fans. I hesitated a while… because, we are a Tenugui Special Online Store. Well… Why not?? “Customers are always right!”
So, here we go! We have started carrying Furoshiki now.

What is the difference between Tenugui and Furoshiki?
Tenugui is a 100% cotton rectangular cloth, and is used for wiping, wrapping, wearing, and many more ways. Tenugui width is between 34 to 38cm, and the length is between 90 to 120cm.
Furoshiki is a square cloth, made of many different materials, such as silk, cotton, hemp, rayon or polyester. Furoshiki can be used for wrapping and carrying items, but not for wiping and wearing like Tenugui.

Holiday gift season comes now. These are my gift ideas for Tenugui fans!
Christmas color mame-shibori just arrived, how about sending a forrest green and a berry red tenugui as a set like a photo? or you can make a heart with two tenugui also!

Do you know about “Mottainai”?
“Mottainai” means “Don’t Waste” in Japanese, it’s the way to describe conserving the environment.
3R (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle) + Respect = Mottainai, as stated by Wangari Maathai ph.D, Furoshiki and Tenugui can support your own way of Mottainai Campaign, saving the environment for our children’s future.

These are gift wrapping ideas with Tenugui and Furoshiki (Please check HOW TO USE at out site). You can save wrapping paper, tapes, wrapping tissues… and many more “one time use” wrapping items, and also your friends and families can use it after they’ve opened their gifts! Not only that, you can save much more money too!

Let’s start our own way of Mottainai Campaign for our world!

Happy Holidays, Tenugui Fans!!!!!

- The night before Christmas -

I would like to send y’all a short poem today for this special season.

It’s 4am now and I’m watching you sleep…

I’ve seen the sunset in the ocean in so many countries.

I’ve seen moutains kiss the sky in so many places.

I’ve seen desert’s sand glow from the sun.

I’ve seen the moon reflect it’s comforting watching over me from a mountain’s lake.

… but nothing in this world is as beautiful and as peaceful,

the sight of your face while you sleep…

The night before Christmas, you are the best gift from heaven.


Have a happy holiday season, and God bless you and your family…

The Gordon School – composition #03 – Winter in New England -


“Winter in New England”

Winter in New England is one of my favorite times during the year. I really like it when the seasons change.

The designs on my Tenugui show aspect of the season – snowflakes, muffins, ice skates and winter hats.
