Tenugui, Mameshibori

  • Mameshibori literally means “bean squeeze” because the fabric resembles small beans that are lined up together and squeezed in tightly before it is dyed. The line of “beans” also symbolize an uninterrupted line of descendants, so mameshibori carries the hope that one's descendants will continue for generations, and symbolizes an ardent wish for prosperity. Made in the mameshibori way, this Tenugui is an all-purpose cotton towel that can be enjoyed as a hand towel, a dishcloth, a washcloth, a headscarf or even as a cloth for wrapping gifts.
