Just to give everyone a heads up - there are two new Vader TENUGUI that have been released. Personally, I love Japanese art (in general), and I think the SW editions are brilliantly executed.
"Darth Vader on Fire"
"Darth Vader - Fireworks"
Here is the link to Strapya World for the entire SW line of TENUGUI:
These are 1,480jpn (18.00usd), and I've never had a single problem ordering from Strapya World.

A typical Kendo-style Tenugui
A Tenugui (手拭い) is a thin Japanese hand towel made of cotton.
It is typically about 35 by 90 centimeters in size, plain weaved and is almost always printed with some pattern.
It can be used for anything a towel could be used for - as a washcloth, dishcloth, headband, souvenir or decoration. Towels made from terry cloth have replaced many of its use in the household. However tenugui is still popular as a souvenir, decoration and as a head covering in Kendo.
A tenugui frequently appears in anime and manga as a prop during a sentō scene.
