hand-printed tenugui

Hand printing is a manufacturing method in which a mold is made and color paste is applied by hand to permeate the color into the fabric. The skill of the craftsman who measures the degree of penetration of the dye is required. In addition, compared to hand-dyeing, hand-dyeing is less prone to fading and can express fine patterns and other highly designed items. After dyeing, the towels are completed through processes such as drying, steaming, washing, and ironing.
