In Japan, the tenugui is an ubiquitous item that can be used for a variety of tasks. The long and thin cotton cloth can wrap your tenkara rod to protect it from scratches, or wrap your head and neck to protect them from the sun. The thin unhemmed fabric will dry quickly and can be used as a towel to clean or dry. Of course, you can also simply hang it as decoration with your tenkara gear or in your fly-tying area.
We like to think of the tenugui as a Japanese bandana. Like tenkara, the tenugui embodies simplicity and offers great utility and versatility.
The only question now is, how will you use your tenugui?
