The Japanese Tenugui cloth is meant to do whatever you want it to do. Over the last 1200 years, these hand-dyed cloths have been used as a variety things—handkerchiefs, scarves and everything in between. After a brief visit to the Tortoise General Store, I was sold on this fabric after one of their workers showed me a 5-year old cut that was still holding together. And, since I had lost my navy blue pocket square the other day, I’ll be using this fabric to make a few more replacements. I got things to wipe.
To the right, is issue 13 of Bad Day Magazine. Printed biannually, this Toronto-based zine has grown into one of my favorites. It’s ran completely independent—meaning no investors, no grants and definitely no one telling them what to write about. The hand-sized publication does a lot with a little and chooses smart design and typography over full-color and large formats. This issue features Charlotte Gainsbourg, Patrik Ervell and a bunch of other people I still need to read about. If you can find it, buy it. Go Canada!
