Truly a Japonisme symbol to remind you of the highest discipline and arts refined during the Warring States period of Japan, perfected the base of contemporary Japanese art and design.Hand towel or TENUGUI became popular in Japan with the spread of use of cotton in the Edo period. Among the hand towels made that time, those made by Edo artisans with patterns of ukiyo-e and kabuki were especially appreciated for their refined design. Date clan, is an outstanding samurai family as their influence during the Japanese Warring states period or Sengoku Jidai. And Date Masamune, is a famous general of that period who is renowned for his distinguished military arts with an erudite personality. Kabutos of the Date clan have the most refined shape of the Kabutos in this particular period. This item is hand-perfected by artisans who have taken over the traditional Edo workmanship. The origin of the design comes from the Kabuto ornament of Date clan "crescent moon", the only gold ornament of black-lacquered armor. The distinguishing feature of this hand towel is its gold-brown color crescent on the black cloth. We avoided dyeing it mostly with gold color, to represent a refined modern design. A strip of cloth is possible to make this unique pattern as almost same size of the real ornament.
As a daily necessity, although hand towels are very useful with its high absorbency but they are also widely used as interior goods or wrapping material.Size: 32cm (H)x 102cm (W)
