Tenugui is a Japanese traditional cotton cloth. It is a staple to have around the house. It is found in every japanese household. It can be used as a light towel, dishcloth, as a decoration to display on the wall or can be suspended to cover open shelves.
On this tenugui we can see a heron. In Japanese culture, heron is a sign of purity. It is a noble and graceful animal. Heron brings good fortune and guidance. He seems to be hiding behind a sudare, a wood or bamboo and yarn blind, which protects from the sun during summer but also from indiscret eyes, especially in Kyoto where houses were built close to each other.
