Kamawanu is one of Japan’s leading tenugui brands, with a reputation for craftsmanship based on traditional Japanese culture. A method established more than 100 years ago called “chusen”, known in English as “thread dyed”, transforms raw thread into colored thread resulting in very durable color. Kamawanu tenugui are made using traditional techniques with a long history. Kamawanu offers over 400 types of hand towels, from classic to modern patterns that are loved not by Japanese and many others around the world.

All of Kamawanu’s tenugui are hand-made by skilled craftsmen. Each batch of tenugui is the result of hours of care and labor by individuals’ attention to the smallest details—how craft should be! The more you wash a Kamawanu tenugui, the softer it becomes. Tenugui are dyed and woven, not printed. The “chusen” technique which dyes all the way through the material, makes each tenugui reversible. Chusen-dyed colors fade only slightly over time, providing the experience of the colors “relaxing” with regular use. With more use and washing, Kamawanu tenugui become personalized objects, reflecting the Japanese term “mono no aware”, or empathy for objects.
Since ancient times, there are many Japanese patterns which are rich with meaning and reflect a life filled with wishes and dreams. At Kamawanu, They incorporate these historical, auspicious motifs into the design of their tenugui — a reflection of tradition. At the same time, Kamawanu also create new designs that are well-loved across Japan and the world. This mix of the historical and the new that Kamawanu has cultivated reflects an intentional desire to create “tenugui that will still be loved 100 years from now”.
Kamawanu tenugui are multi-purpose accessories designed to complement your home life in a variety of ways that are both functional and decorative. Tenugui can be used as table runners, placemats, napkins, and as modern ornamentation to bring a splash of color and Japanese taste to your home.
