Tenugui has as many uses as your imagination. 

Here are a few ideas for inspiration!


  1. Lay the bottle down at one end of the tenugui.
  2. Take the bottom and cover up to the wine’s neck.
  3.  Wrap the bottle.
  4. Twist the tenugui tightly from the top of the bottle.
  5. While making a loop, wrap the twisted strand around the bottle’s neck.
  6. Finish by tucking the twisted part into the loop you made.


  1. Lay your tenugui horizontally with the bottom side up.
  2. Fold the right end of the tenugui about 2 inches and place the bottle on tenugui .
  3. Without covering the neck of the bottle, tie the left and the right corners of the folded part.
  4. Wrap the rest and twist it tightly from the end of the bottle.
  5. Take the twisted part and tuck it under the first knot made with the corners.
  6. Finish it by tying off the twisted part.


  1. Lay the tenugui horizontally and then fold it in half.
  2. Take the top/bottom edges and fold them to the center.
  3. Take the bottom and fold it up.
  4. Fold the left side 2/3 of the tenugui.
  5. Then, take the right side and put it into the pocket of the left side you just folded.
  6. Flip your case over and place your glasses into the first pocket closest to you.


  1. Lay the tenugui vertically.
  2. Fold tenugui in half then fold the bottom up an inch.
  3. Place the cutlery near the top of the tenugui.
  4. Fold the bottom of the tenugui up to the neck of the cutlery (the folding length depends on size of the utensils being used).
  5. Take the sides and fold them to the back (the width of the fold depends on size of the utensils being used).
