Cat Hand Towel | eBay

Cat Hand Towel | eBay

This hand towel is called a "tenugui". A
Tenugui (手拭い) is a thin Japanese hand towel made of cotton. It is
typically  plain woven and is almost always dyed with some pattern. It
can be used for anything a towel could be used for - as a washcloth,
dishcloth, but often as a headband, souvenir or decoration. Towels made
from terry cloth have replaced many of its use in the household. However
tenugui are still popular as souvenirs, decorations, and as a head
covering in kendo, where it functions as a sweatband, as extra padding
beneath the headgear (men), and to identify the participants by team

It is 50 cm x 50 cm (approx 19.6 x 19.6 inches) and is 100% cotton.
