Tenugui mumbling Vol.110 – Tenugui Noren

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012
Tenugui Fan Yolin's Tenugui Noren

Tenugui Fan Yolin made Tenugui noren with two First Sunrise Tenugui

Tenugui Fan Yolin sent us a photo to sharing his Tenugui Noren with us! He used two First Sunrise Tenugui, and made a hem on the top of Tenugui for a rod. Can you see details on his Noren?? The cloud lined up together, cranes are flying toward each other… you know why? Because he used one tenugui face up, and the other uses reverse side, that is why he can made this detailed design. Only Japanese chusen tenugui can make this amazing trick!

Two cherry blossom tenugui can make a big one tree!

Two cherry blossom tenugui can make a big one tree!

Check this photo! I framed two Cherry Blossom tenugui, one is face up, and the other uses reverse side, and hang them on the wall next together. What you see on the wall?? Yes, one big Cherry Tree!

Japanese Chusen method came up over 100 years ago. Using this special dye method, and we can be able to dye both face and reverse side, dye through colors both side. That is why, chusen tenugui can make this special trick!

It’s a Tenugui Magic, Viva Tenugui \(*v*)/

Using Tenugui as a tea towel

We received beautiful photos from Tenugui Fan Blair from San Diego, California. He is a Tea master, and use his Tenugui to handle his tetsubin (Iron tea pot). He said that Tenugui is perfect for holding the hot lid and wiping down a tetsubin to keep it looking great and rust free. He keep one handy for all tea sessions.

Blair practice Cha-No-Yu, Sencha-Do and Chinese Gongfu-Cha. He use a different seasonal themed tenugui every month to handle his cast iron tea kettle. Tenugui keeps him focused on the moment and the season at hand while protecting his fingers from the hot kettle. He use tenugui with his tetsubin for both japanese Sencha-Do and Chinese Gongfu-Cha as a tea towel.

Surely, Tenugui can use many different ways. Thank you Blair for sharing your Tenugui Story with us. Let’s have a cup of tea, with your Tenugui!

Tenugui mumbling Vol.103 – Jereme Sander’s Story

Sunday, December 18th, 2011

?

Jereme is a Parkour practitioner, a member of the Tribe (Professional Parkour Team) and American Parkour, and also he is a Tenugui fan. You can find him at Tenugui on the street Vol.35 at our site.

Parkour originally came from France, and was used for Military education and training during World War I and II.? The main purpose of the discipline is to teach participants how to move through their environment by vaulting, rolling, running, climbing and jumping…. just like a Ninja!

This video is a story about Jereme Sanders; becoming and working to be a Parkour Traceur is not easy, but his passion and love of Parkour has touched my heart deeply.

It’s a great thing to have what you love most, and living your life doing what you love.
Life has many different forms, and I believe that your love and passion, and thoughts, create your destiny.

Wishing Happy Holidays,?Jereme and ?all Tenugui Fans!

Tenugui mumbling Vol.89 – A Peace of Cloth – Quilting Arts

Monday, April 11th, 2011

?

Title "Japanese Rhapsody in Blue" completed in June 2009

My happiest time is reading messages from Tenugui fans everyday. Sometime I receive letters, e-mail, and photos.
I always smile myself,?and imagine their smiling faces with their?tenugui. Some tenugui fans are martial arts practitioners, Kendo players, cancer patients, and some of them are artists,?musicians, sushi chefs…??and also quilting artists.
I am so happy to know that many people love?tenugui in many different ways, that’s exactly what I like to see. Tenugui has limitless possibilities, and no boundaries.

Elisabeth-san?is an amazing quilting artist, and also a member of the Japan Quilting Group in Australia?. She visited Japan a few years ago for her quilting tour, and fell in love with Japan and Japanese traditional textile, especially indigo cottons (aizome). I can see her love of Japan from her compositions.

The first quilt is called “Japanese Rhapsody in Blue”, it was completed in June 2009. This quilt is machine-pieced and hand-quilted.

Title "Noshi Matters" completed in Jan 2011

Title is Noshi Matters, completed in January 2011

The second quilt is called “Noshi Matters”, and was completed in early January, 2011. Noshi is a bow, and is used during very special Japanese traditional occasions. Machine-pieced and hand-quilted, the size is 36 by 63 inches.

Title is My Japanese Journey - her new composition

Kimono, Japanese houses, and flowers... so beautiful together

Kimono, Japanese houses, and flowers... so beautiful together

The last composition is called “My Japanese Journey”, machine-pieced and hand-appliqued, with sashiko, and she is working on hand-quilting now. The size is 58 by 73 inches. I can see her beautiful memory of Japan trip on her quilt.

A Peace of cloth…. that I felt from her compositions. A precious fabric was sewed and linked together, and she put a life into her quilts.? I think Quilting Arts are just like a magic!

Thank you very much for sharing these beautiful quilts and your love of Japan with us. The beauty of Japan will stay forever in your blue peace of cloth….

thank-you
