Hana-Fukin Kitchen Cloth
Award winning (GOOD DESIGN AWARD 2008) "Hana Hukin" is a beautiful cotton cloth made of pure cotton fabric formerly used as mosquito netting which is a specialty of Nara Prefecture, Japan. Mosquito netting fabric (kaya) has high absorbency and durability and is perfect in dishcloths. The cloths are large yet thin, easily folded for use and then spread out to dry. Over time, the cloths become soft and supple, and eventually, they make good rags. Available in 5 colours named with Japanese flowers, each cloth is individually wrapped in paper ready to give as a gift.
Wash off the starch with warm water before the first use.
