Tenugui: Japanese Traditional Cloth
"Tenugui, a hand dyed cotton cloth has always been an essential tool for the Japanese. Not only was it used as a wiping tool such as a towel or a handkerchief, it was also used as a bandage or a headwear in the old days. To dry quicker in such a humid country like Japan, and for multipurpose use, the ends are unfinished so it will fray after first few washes."
