A tenugui (手拭い) is a thin Japanese hand towel.
A tenugui has a similar function to towels, being used as a washcloth or dishcloth, for example.
They are often used as headbands, souvenirs, decorations, or for wrapping bottles and similar items.
However tenugui are still popular as souvenirs, decorations, and as a head covering in kendo, where it functions as a sweatband and provides extra padding beneath the headgear (men).
