"eptenu" is a coined word of apron + tenugui ; A tenugui is a traditional Japanese cotton towel.

We designed and developed the product because we want you to enjoy meals heartily. It is for those who do not want to regret getting their favorite clothes, suits, or fashionable dresses dirty at the time of a meal. It is also for those who worry about a certain menu dirtying their clothes at certain times of the day.

Compact and lightweight, this multifunctional apron can be carried around as a handkerchief in everyday life and used as an apron during meals. It can be quickly worn around the neck when dining with children and shared between parents and children. It can also be used as a first apron for children, for cooking, washing dishes, or for other family assistance at home, and we hope that many families, from children to adults, will use it as a family apron.


The "Kumi Rokumon" motif scattered on the textile eptenu®︎ is based on the six-fold pattern of the Sanada clan crest, which is associated with the city of Ueda. The reversible design, based on the more than 100-year-old textile printing technique and a special technology that dyes different colors from both sides on a single sheet of fabric, allows you to choose your favorite color depending on your mood. When folded, it is as lightweight and portable as a hand towel, and can also be used as a handkerchief. Instead of disposable paper napkins, you can use cloth aprons that can be washed and reused repeatedly.

Since eptenu can be used repeatedly and simple home care, it leads to reduction of dry-cleaning cost and waste, and you can enjoy working on SDGs and ethical consumption.

In addition, the worn-out eptenu can be reused as a house-cloths, so it can be used to the end without waste.

Shall we enjoy meals heartily with your favorite dress, without any stress during and after meals?
