“Tanzen” is a yukata-like kimono made of thick fabric. It is widely used in hot-spring hotels, etc., during cold seasons. Tanzen is worn over a yukata and fastened with an obi (belt). The long length and use of padding were born from our ancestors' wisdom to spend cold winter in a warm and cozy manner.
The abundant and fine forests of Tenryu have long supported the cotton textile industry of the Enshu Region. This rod product was born out of the wish to preserve these forests. Cedar trees more than 60 years old are logged, and then carefully dried & processed for over 6 months. Use these rods to hang and enjoy tenugui and cotton tsumugi to decorate your house, office, and store, etc.
With this traditional technique, dye is poured over a stencil placed on a stack of cloth. The technique has been passed down for over a hundred years in this yukata producing place “Hamamatsu”, where skilled craftsmen make each piece by hand.
