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.

Komon are traditional Japanese patterns originally developed for kimono. They are small, all-over patterns that can be geometric or depict objects found in nature and everyday life.

The edges of the tenugui are left raw; the fraying will stop after a few washes.
