This set of tenuguis features a variety of patterns and totems from the outlying islands of Japan, including an Ibuki shoe, an Awashima girl, an Ogijima leaf, and Oshima waterfowl. The tenuguis are 90x35 cm. In early times, tenugui served a practical purpose. Today, they are no longer essential, yet they remain extremely popular for their elegant tie-died or printed patterns. They are now used as covering against the sun, bags, headbands, and even curtains.
