Color — Natural
Made in Osaka, Japan, the Sasawashi textile is a naturally deodorizing, hyper-absorbent blend of organic Kumazasa plant fibers, and is exclusive to the family-run company. This exfoliating wash cloth is not for the faint of heart: the mesh fabrication is extremely efficient at removing dead skin cells and excess oils.
Sasawashi fabric is made by blending two revered Japanese materials—yarns of Washi paper and the leaves of the kumazasa plant—to create a new super-fiber that retains the best properties of both. Washi is a unique paper, absorbent of both oil and water, used to control heat and UV rays in the summer. Kumazasa thrives through harsh winter weather and has antibacterial properties—together, they make for a gentle yet hard-working cleansing cloth or towel.
