tortoise: tenugui

Traditional Japanese tenugui cloths wed art and function in that each is hand-dyed and wildly expressive - can bear anything from a goldfish print to a subtle pattern - and they can be used as anything from pot holder to scarf. Three make an excellent gift or one, tied around another gift, is lovely giftwrapping. Tortoise, which stocks the most elegant, useful and whimsical Japanese objects, sells them online... check out the rest of their store online or on Venice's Abbot Kinney.
