“Tenugui” are a type of traditional Japanese towel. Since tenugui have a smooth texture that is unlike typical Western terrycloth towels, they can be used in various ways other than just drying hands or bodies.
They are inexpensive and available throughout Japan, not just in special stores but also in souvenir corners or gallery shops.
