What is tenugui? Tenugui is a traditional Japanese hand towel made from thin cotton. The shape is rectangular and comes in a standard size of 35 cm x 90 cm, compared to furoshiki that is square with a standard size of 90 cm x 90 cm. It is an endlessly useful and versatile towel and is used not only as a washcloth or dish cloth but also often used as a gift, headband, souvenir, decoration, wrapper for bottles and other items. IMPORTANT UPDATE: Kindly take note than the design template for the contest has been updated, now available with both vertical and horizontal versions. —— Unleash your creativity and submit your designs under the theme “Malaysia+Japan” for our “Tenugui Design Contest” which is happening now until 31 October 2021.
