We are sprinting towards 2019 — Year of the 🐗Boar! . To celebrate the New Year we have some fun tenugui patterns in stock including boars, lotus root (lotus root symbolizes the act of “looking towards the future” through the lotus root holes) and yaki mochi patterns (mochi is eaten at the beginning of the new year and this tenugui shows the mochi ballooning on the hot grill). . . For those who didn’t get one already, we have some serizawa calendars still left in stock! These traditional desk calendars ALWAYS sell out so be sure to get one before they’re all gone! 🏃🏻‍♀️💨
