Presenting the elegant tenugui (hand towel) designs of a classic Kyoto merchant. Eirakuya Hosotsuji Ihei Shoten has been in business for almost 400 years, ever since its establishment in 1615, the first year of the Genna era (early Edo period). Featuring scenes of famous places of the old capital, maiko dancers, kabuki, moga and mobo (the early 20th century flappers and their hangers-on), lucky charm cats and much more, these refined designs are a treasure trove of nostalgia, originality and stylish playfulness.
