Crafted for Lexus: Nijiyura multi cloth

Inspired by the distinctive Lexus spindle grille, the Nijiyura multi cloth fuses traditional Japanese craftsmanship with modern design.

Based in Sakai in the south of Osaka, Nijiyura is a renowned maker of traditional Japanese multi cloths known in Japan as tenugui.  They use a method of hand-dyeing called chusen, a technique that hasn’t changed in two centuries. It involves folding cotton fabrics over 20 metres in length, called wazarashi, over and over again before pigments are poured on to create the unique patterns.

Since Chusen is a handmade process with variations in temperature and humidity affecting the final result, no two multi cloths are alike. Company founder and master craftsman, Mr. Nakao believes these “imperfections” are what make them so aesthetically appealing. This adds to their uniqueness. 

Tenugui is traditionally integrated into the everyday lives of people in Japan as towels or handkerchiefs and has gradually gained popularity as a characteristic Japanese souvenir amongst tourists as well.
