Found cutest Tenugui Headwrap on Youtube :-)
Title – Introducing Cute Tenugui Wrap by Chiko, Manager of Uniwa

As you know, Tenugui can be used many different ways, more than you can imagine, and has unlimited possibilities to use Tenugui.
Chiko-san was added one folding before wrapping around her head, then making beautiful style with her Tenugui!
I think this is the cutest Tenugui head cover so far, I have been seen. One simple fold making a big style accent, totally amazing!

Enjoy her stylish Tenugui Hairband and her beautiful smile :-)
Thank you very much sharing your Tenugui Smile with us!

Tenugui Mumbling Vol.117 – Tenugui Money Wrap

Japanese traditional style money envelop made with Sakura Tenugui! A Musubi-kiri bow is suitable to use for a wedding or any other celebrations, except a baby shower.

It’s Spring time, season of Graduation and Wedding, and many celebrations are on the way. We have a great gift idea for your family and friends, TENUGUI MONEY WRAP!

In Japan, we also customarily send some money as a gift for celebration, so their family and friends can use it for their future needs. We have a special money envelop, called O-SHU-GI BUKURO (お祝儀袋), means Celebration Envelop. Usually, comes with two parts, a white paper envelop for putting money, and outer wrapping with Japanese washi paper, and then, ties a bow with Japanese traditional strings called Mizuhiki.

Mizuhiki has some traditonal rules; let me explain about Mizuhiki. See the photo below;

The top one called HANA-MUSUBU, just like a standard bow knot. HANA-MUSUBU can unwind and make a knots in many times, so it uses for the event desired to occur repeatedly, like a new born baby and anniversary.

The middle one called MUSUBI-KIRI. MUSUBI-KIRI was knotted very tightly, and can’t unwind after made a knot, so it uses for the event not desired to occur again, such as wedding, celebration for the recovery. MUSUBI-KIRI is also used for funeral and memorial ceremony, but only uses black and white strings, instead red and white (or other colorful colors).

The last one called AWAJI-MUSUBI, AWAJI-MUSUBI was knotted tightly and many circle layers, wishing a long relationship, so it uses for the event like a wedding or anniversaries as well.

OWL DESIGN and HANA-MUSUBI is a perfect money wrap for baby gift and graduation, birthday, and any events want to have repeatedly.

Tenugui Money Wrap is made with a half size Tenugui, so can be used as a Handkerchief later, and keep it with a beautiful celebration memory.
Isn’t so lovely idea?
