    RAAK Gion Kiritoshi Shop

    Reasonably priced gauze handkerchiefs and towels can also be worn as scarves

    Since the shop was established in 1615, “Eirakuya Hosotsuji Ihee” has been running as a cotton merchant for about 400 years.  The 14th owner of the shop started the new brand “RAAK,” the old name for Kyoto, with the concept of creating a new culture using their traditional techniques and expertise.  Among their many branches, the Gion Kirotoshi shop especially offers gauze tenugui (Japanese cotton towel) and towels.  The photo displays the unique and modern designs of Daruma (Bodhidharma), forest bears and Porcupine (1,728 yen each).  These lovely towels can also be used as a handkerchief as well as a scarf.  They make wonderful gifts for friends and family members of all ages.
