Tenugui are the traditional cloth used in Japanese culture to wrap items, dry the hands or used to fashion as a scarf.

You can even shop for special tenugui only available at COREDO Muromachi Terrace, including iconic Japanese images and designs.
Workshop At at Glance (approx. 90 min.)
1. Apply the Glue
Once the paper comes together it’s treated with a dying paste and folded as a single accordion like sheet.
2. Glue & Dyeing
Make a little mountains of paste to work in so no unnecessary dye bleeds out and begin adding in the dye.
3. Wash by Hand
Rinse once the dye setting is complete. Wash off the dyeproof paste and any excess dye.
Once the fabric is thoroughly washed, just wait for it to dry!
This authentic dyeing workshop requires about 1.5 hours to complete.
You can shop for tenugui souvenirs that feature iconic patterns from Japanese culture.
