Don't know what it is?  
Tenugui is a traditional Japanese hand towel that can be a hand towel OR it can also serve as a napkin, a headband, a souvenir, a decoration.  They get better over time and with many washes.  Here's our first series.

Available as all over dot or as negative to positive 
colors: red, black, blue and copper
