Japanese Tenugui Head Wrap Description

Japanese Tengugui is a traditional hand cloth made from cotton, they date back to the Heian period or possibly even earlier. By the Edo period, Tengugui stayed at what they are today; about 35 by 90 cm in size, nearly always plain for flat woven, always dyed with plain color or patterns. The long sides are finished with a hem, while the short sides are left unfinished to allow fraying, giving that super cool old skool look. Even though they can be used a cloth or towels in martial arts they are used by Kendo practitiioenrs as headband or head scarfs that go underneath the kendo Headguard or men. This helps wick up sweat and acts as padding from the hard head protection.

We can send your item(s) in the following ways:

Courier Tracked and Insured - Order before 1pm, we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next working day, this is not a weekend service. It is fully tracked and we will send you the tracking number when we process your order.

Evri - In our experience an extremely slow service, we cannot guarantee it will arrive. It isn’t insured or tracked. If you want this pitiful service and your parcel thrown into a random hedge near your house, if you're lucky, just to save about £2 the go for us. Good luck
