MOCA presents ​Kamawanu demonstration: How to Use Tenugui on May 25, 2017!

There are no rules for how to use tenugui. Tenuguis are multipurpose hand-dyed cotton towels that have a long tradition in everyday life in Japan. With their colorful inks and patterns, the tenugui are often used for wrapping items for gifts, turned into accessories, or given as a token of luck and appreciation. The president of Kamawanu, a tenugui designer in Tokyo famous for its injection dyeing technique, will be in the store to share the history and tradition of these cloths.
