Tenugui are plain weave thin cotton cloths about 35" x 13" in size. They have been used for centuries in Japan for a variety of purposes, and many people use them as washcloths and headbands. 

The design of this tenugui is by Utagawa Kuniyoshi, one of the last great masters of ukiyo-e. Kuniyoshi perfectly captures the playful cats in various actions.

The finish of this tenuqui is unique that all four sides are stitched. (Standard cotton fabric for tenugui is woven in 13" width so long sides are selvedges; cut sides are left unhemmed.)
