Haori are jackets that fall to the hips or down to the knees, and that add a bit of formality. Originally, the haori was worn only by men, until the Meiji period, when it was adopted by women.

Tenugui (手 拭) is a kind of fine Japanese cotton towel. It generally measures 35 × 90 cm and is white, sometimes adorned with the family “name”, or printed with various patterns, notably traditional.
It can be used daily as a handkerchief or like any other towel, for cooking, hands, dishes, etc., but also as a souvenir or decoration. Terry towels have now largely replaced its use in the home.
Tenugui can also serve as an advertising medium for shops or storytellers.
