This is a comprehensive design collection of Kamawanu - a Japanese 'Tenugui' (dyed cotton cloth). Tenugui, literally means 'hand towel', and is one of commodities in Japanese life but it can also be used in a variety of ways: wall decoration, gift wrapping; as a tea towel, bandanna or as a head accessory. This book introduces more than 300 designs with simple explanations and some useful ideas for Tenugui usage. Photos throughout suggest ways of coordinating Kamawanu's Tenugui into interior design. This title will appeal to those interested in Japanese culture as well as textile designers or illustrators.
