【Cautions for Tenugui Towels】
・Please note that the color may transfer due to perspiration or friction when you start to use the Tenugui because it is a traditional craft (Chizome).
・When washing, please wash alone with plenty of water.
・Please avoid soaking the product in water.
・Colors may fade or shrink slightly when washed.
・Colors may vary depending on the environment in which they are viewed.
The edges of the tenugui are traditionally left uncut. This is to make it easier to dry after getting wet and to prevent dirt from accumulating on the edges of the fabric to keep it clean.
