Eirakuya Hosotsuji Ihee Shoten

  • Time-honored cotton cloth company founded in 1615
  • Eirakuya Hosotsuji Ihee Shoten is the oldest cotton cloth company in Japan and is currently run by the fourteenth generation of the family that originally founded it 400 years ago. The company now reproduces the tenugui (hand towels) they used to manufacture from the early Meiji period through the Showa period (late 19th century to mid 20th century), which are known as “Machiya Tenugui.” These hand towels are dyed using the yuzen technique, producing beautiful colors unlike those seen on other tenugui. One of the key characteristics of “Machiya Tenugui” is the fact that the colors don’t easily fade. They can be used as regular hand towels but also look fantastic displayed in frames on the wall like paintings. Pick one up as the perfect memento of your trip to Kyoto.
