The most distinctive feature of kenema’s tenugui is that they are dyed using the chusen technique. Chusen is a particular kind of stencil-based dyeing. With chusen, a starch paste is first applied, then dye is poured onto both sides of the layers of fabric (which have been piled one on top of the other), creating a dyed pattern. The tenugui fabric is dyed on both sides, which gives it a particular three-dimensional quality that cannot be enjoyed with any other printing technique.
