Imabari MURAKAMI Washi Wash Towel (Stripe)
Cotton and paper intertwine Japanese tradition
- Deodorising effect
- Massage effect
Thin yet strong, washi Japanese paper is said to be the world's most outstanding paper. We took classic washi made in the city of Mino in Gifu prefecture, combined it with cotton and wove it into a towel.
The washi paper fibres are slit finely with a micro slitter to a width of 1 to 4mm, and wound into a spiral. The slit washi is twisted and interlaced with other fibres to create a material for use in woven fabrics.
Washi is an ecological material that is "created from nature and returns to nature to be reused". It also has excellent compatibility with cotton. With the same mass as linen, yet only one third of the weight, a washi towel is ideal for everyday use.
