Tenugui mumbling Vol.91 – Precious Life… on Earth Day

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

?

My sweet friend Emiko sent me this video the other day, because she knew I am a big fan of Dr. Andrew Weil. I would like to share this beautiful movie “Gaia Symphony” on Earth Day!

You may see Tenugui in many scenes in this short film, Takako Takano (Environment Educator) is wearing a tenugui as a head wrap, Greg Lemond (a former champion of road bicycle racer) is taking a dip?in the?Japanese hot spring, and people are covering their heads with white tenugui while attending Japanese ritual ceremonies….

I have started my new Tenugui project “I HEART JAPAN Tenugui Project” since last week to help support the survivors of Japan earthquake and Tsunami. It helps in supporting the survivors, by sending tenugui and care messages to them. I have received many messages from Tenugui fans. It has been a very precious moment for me to get a messages from the supporters, and write it down on a heart shaped card to the survivors. You can see all care messages that we have received on our site now.
?
And guess what?
You may find Dr. Weil’s message to the Japanese survivors on “Message from Around the World” at our site also!

Life is very precious, we never know what will happen tomorrow. Let’s be thankful for what we have now, and thankful for the life we have… We all live on this blue round earth together…

Tenugui mumbling Vol.90 – How to use tenugui by Bunny-chan

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

?

Bunny-chan is introducing you how to use Tenugui!

Bunny-chan is introducing you how to use Tenugui!

Her name is Bunny-chan, and she is introducing you how to use Tenugui! She loves Tenugui very much , as much as I do! This is a card holder for my new tenugui project “?I HEART JAPAN Tenugui Project” , and my sweet friend Emiko put all my bunnies together on the card. (Thank you Emiko!!!!)
I designed and produced a special tenugui to help emotional support to the suvivors of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan on March 11th, 2011.

When customers purchase “I HEART JAPAN” tenugui online or events, we’ll send a mame-shibori tenugui which has been very popular among the Japanese for centuries, with their care messages to the survivors. I choose a heart shaped card which I found them in Paper Source, Brooklyn, and I named it as Kokoro Card. Kokoro means Heart in Japanese…

This is a donation mame-shibori tenugui with Kokoro Card and bunny-chan card holder!

I would like to continue this project as long as I can, and my goal is for all the survivors to receive a tenugui and a kokoro card someday… and I am sure that Bunny-chan will bring a smile to them also.
