Get Wrapped Up in Fall: Seasonal Tenugui Patterns Have Arrived!

Tenugui cloths are hand-dyed, 100% cotton, traditional Japanese cloths with a multitude of uses.  A functional daily commodity and an understated piece of traditional handcraft with patterns, both whimsical and traditional, we just can't get enough of!  And for those of us who have collected tenugui cloths for years, the arrival of seasonal patterns is an extra exciting highlight.  
Tenugui patterns often reflect the colorful and dynamic natural world, and our fall tenugui patterns are no different–featuring an array of popular symbols of autumn.  Chestnuts and acorns maturing off of their trees; delicious sanma fish that swim from the cold Hokkaido waters to the main island of Japan where their meat becomes especially flavorful; and of course, everyone's favorite fall fruit and vegetable: the bright orange persimmon and bulbous green Japanese pumpkin.  Find these fun and spirited fall patterns, plus many more, down below!

Since 1875, only one family in Kyoto has single-handedly produced Kaikado canisters using an original technique with over 130 steps.  These air-tight traditional canisters, known as chazutsu, can be used to store and protect a variety of things from tea to herbs to cookies.  We've restocked our Kaikado canisters once again after a long wait.  As always, supplies are limited.
