"Kondo Dyeing Studio", established in 1898 (Meiji 31),
created this tenugui cloth using their traditional dyeing technique of
brush drawing and hand dyeing.
To draw outlines, the artisans put glue on a cloth and once the glue dries,
they dye the cloth using brushes. By changing the brush depending on the color,
it enhances the color's consistency and evenness.
In celebrating 2019's Chinese/Japanese zodiac "ox",
this "Hagi ni inoshishi (bush clovers and oxen)" tenugui features
a family of oxen running around the bush clovers with joy,
illustrated by Ms. Michiko Abe of Yotsuba-sha design studio.
This tenugui is versatile,
you can put it in a frame, hang it on the wall as a tapestry or
use it as a wrapping cloth.
