Tenugui “Hitta-Kanoko Pattern(green)”

This is a tenugui with a pattern of Hikita-shibori, one of the traditional Japanese tie-dyeing techniques. “Kanoko-shibori” is a pattern in which the cloth is squeezed into small pieces with thread so that the colors do not bleed into those areas, and is named after its resemblance to the spots of a deer. It is often seen in gorgeous kimonos such as furisode (long-sleeved kimono).In order to express “Kanoko-shibori” more easily and inexpensively, the “Hikita” pattern was created to express the pattern itself as a design. This is due to the aesthetic sense and ingenuity of the people of the Edo period.

This tenugui is dyed with a traditional Japanese color called “Yanagi-dyeing color”. Yanagi (willow) color is a light green color that was loved by the nobility in the Heian period. Yanagi- dyeing started in the early Edo period and became a representative color of green with time.

You can feel Japanese culture from Hikita Shibori’s tenugui dyed in “Yanagi-dyeing color,” which has been loved by Japanese people for a long time. It is also recommended as a souvenir from Japan to overseas.
