The Making of Tenugui Cloths
We wanted to share this video produced by Kamawanu about the making of their tenugui cloths. Since their inception in 1987, the company has been practicing the art of chusen dyeing, a dyeing process that allows for delicate patterns to be replicated with vivid texture and color on both sides of the cloth. The labour-intensive process is depicted beautifully in this video, revealing the surprising amount of steps that go into each hand-dyed cloth.
