WASHI MATOU is a towel made from a blend of Japanese paper and natural materials.
Washi paper is made from the inner bark (periderm) of Japanese trees. The bark of this layer is naturally soft, and the towels woven into fibers are gentle and gentle on the skin. Its woody properties can reduce odor and keep you dry.
The color selection of towels favors the wabi-sabi style, which can easily match the contemporary home design.
The towel is woven in a waffle pattern, providing maximum and durable elasticity for maximum coverage of the skin. Washi paper has the property of controlling humidity. Its tree fibers can effectively absorb moisture when the humidity is high and moisturize when drying. Therefore, Washi towels combined with the traditional production method of Quanzhou towels make them not only absorbent but also quick-drying.
Quanzhou towel features-
"Lightweight, quick-drying, water-absorbent, skin-friendly, and durable"
Izumisano City in Osaka Prefecture is the place where Japan's first towel was produced. Japanese towels produced in the same place are called "Quanshu towels". The biggest feature of Quanzhou towels is that they are made using the "post-drying" method. "Drying" is the process of cleaning, bleaching and dyeing. To make cotton threads weave more tightly and easily, the threads are coated with a layer of wax. Although weaving becomes easier, it makes the towel less absorbent. Therefore, Quanzhou towels undergo a "drying" process after they are made, where the wax on the towels is washed away and dyed in different colors.
This "post-drying" method not only makes Quanzhou towels cleaner and less impurities when they leave the factory, but also makes them highly absorbent and more skin-friendly.
Taisho 15 ( 1926 ), Fukurodani Tsunekichi created the original Fukurodani towel, which has been inherited and developed by his descendants. In recent years, Fukurodani Towels has not only carried out modern production, but also started some interesting and meaningful creative projects.
