Takara Gallery & Workroom is a silkscreen studio located in Gugo city in Gifu Prefecture, Japan. They aim to increase interest in traditional Japanese towel known as Tenugui through their hands-on Tenugui silkscreen classes and gallery shop that features Tenugui, Furoshiki and other Japanese textile related products by selected artists. We are honored to have our Tenugui produced by skilled craftsmen at Takara gallery and happy to see our products in their shop!

Gujo city is a popular holiday spot for many Janpanese and also recognised as the birthplace of silkscreening industry in Japan. According to Maho-chan, owner of Takara Gallery, the best time to visit is in Summer when they have the biggest dance festival called Gujo-Odori. If you are planning a trip to Japan, perhaps you can consider dropping by Takara Gallery in Gujo city for a hands-on experience on making your own Tenugui!
