Hand-woven towels, made in California

t×3 tuch / tenugui / towel

Inspired by old linen cloth (tuch) woven by my great-grandparents in Germany, as well as by the dimensions and use of Japanese cotton towels called tenugui, the towels I weave are narrow and long. They are hard-wearing textiles that can be used in multiple ways in the household.

I keep detailed descriptions on the weaving of each towel woven for this project in the Notes section.


The cloth I make is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. It focuses on simple weave structures (mostly plain weave), neutral colors (natural, off-white, and black), and humble everyday objects (kitchen towels).
