Item # 113216.

Having trouble remembering your pitches? Wear this around your head for a quick reference during the big game. Tenugui (literally translated-"hand wiping") is a traditional, thin cotton towel used for everything from drying hands to carrying sake bottles, and even a handy headband to keep sweat out of your eyes. Before the 17th century in Japan, tenugui were made of silk and hemp and were products for the elite class. From the 17th through 19th centuries, the increase in public baths created a higher demand for tenugui among the common people. It was around this time that tenugui were used as promotional and commemorative products. Hand dyed and made in Japan by traditional dyeing methods. 100% cotton. 12" x 35"
