Tenugui mumbling Vol.133 – Sending your Love to Someone Special

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014
Hand-crafted paper is came from Florence, Italy.

Hand-crafted paper is came from Florence, Italy.

We have started free message service, sending a message card to your family, friends, and someone very special with your Tenugui online order. The message card is came from Medioevalis (www.medioevalis.it), Florence, Italy. The Hand crafted paper has one-of-kind hand touch, a soft felted finish on surface. The four corner of edges are carefully and naturally tearing the sheets, that was made same as Italian tradition paper making method back to the 15th century.

I feel that it is much more important to us, to sending a hand-writing card than a electric message, like text or e-card, as much as cyber world grow. One-of-kind and Love, I believe that these two things are connected closely. Let us help you to sending your Love to someone very special!

Our free message service has been continuing 24/7 :-)

Tenugui mumbling Vol. 114 – Valentine’s day or Fundoshi Day?

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and Fundoshi Day!

Valentines Day or Fundoshi Day?

I found this photo on Facebook, and I LOVE IT!!!!!!! It said; ” February 14th, Valentine’s and Fundoshi Day – Relationship and Fundoshi can make a knot many times. ”

Do you know about Fundoshi? Fundoshi is a Japanese traditional underwear that has a very long history. The shape of Fundoshiis a vertical Tenugui with a long string attached on it. You can use string to tie Fundoshi around your waist, and the Tenugui portion comes around between your legs. See the photo of Tenugui Fundoshi master Ringmaster Yoshi (Tokyo Circus) here!

Ringmaster Yoshi - Tokyo Circus!

Ringmaster Yoshi - Tokyo Circus!

So now, I think I can think of this quote in two different ways;

1. When your Fundoshi get looser, you can tie up(or fix) tightly anytime, so does your old relationship.

2. Fundoshi can tie many times, so does making new relationship with someone always.

Well… how do you think?
Let’s give a nicely tight hug to your sweetheart tomorrow, and show her/him your true love!
Or hug yourself nicely for Thank you being ME :-)

Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day, Tenugui Fans \(*v*)/
We love you always!!!!!!

Shishimai means Lion Dance in Japanese. The lion dance originaly came from India, and the Buddhist belief that the lion is regarded as a guardian creature. We can see Shishimai dances in New Years, or any celebration in Japan, as well as?in China. These photos were taken by a Japanese photographer, TETSU, in Nigata, Japan.? You may feel the movement of Shishimai dance from his photos.

February 14th is Valentine’s day, and also Chinese New Years, this year. You may see Lion Dance if you live near China town (or maybe in China) very soon! If not, let’s celebrate Lunar New Year together with TETSU’s lion dance photos!!!

Tenugui mumbling vol.27 – Valentine’s Day at Tiffany’s

Wednesday, February 4th, 2009
Tiffany's show window

Tiffany's show window

I always love to visit Tiffany’s. Maybe it’s because I love “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, or because I love the character of?Holly Golightly, and that we have some shared experiences.?We both?moved to New York from Texas to start our new lives.

Tiffany's front door

Tiffany's front door

As soon as I enter Tiffany’s revolving door, the elegant doorman is waiting and says “Welcome to Tiffany’s”. He always has that Tiffany’s smile on his face. I walk straight to the elevator and?again hear, “Welcome to Tiffany’s” from the gentle elevator man greeting me so nicely.

What do I always do at Tiffany’s?
l visit their Customer Service Center?on the?6th floor and have my jewelry cleaned. The luxurious and spacious room is very elegant, and simply gorgeous. As I am waiting on the sofa, I become calm and relaxed. There is much stress surrounding us constantly in New York, but not in Tiffany’s! The time flows gently and elegantly. The personal customer service lady takes my jewelry and gives them a nice special bath, and bring new shinny life into them.
I wish that someday my Tenugui will be like Tiffany’s – and that brighten your day!

Valentine’s day is very soon! Please send a warm message to your special someone to express your sweet love… But first of all, send a big Valentine’s Hug to yourself for being yourself!

Happy Valentine’s day!
