Vegetable Dyed Hana-Fukin kitchen cloths are created in collaboration with FOOD TEXTILE, a project that produces textile products using colouring materials taken from vegetables and food wastes. More than 90% is natural dye resulting in subtle colors in the kitchen cloth. The cloths passed the colour fastness test so that the dye stays without fading for a long time as you use.

This listing is for the Hana-Fukin dyed with Radish, there are also Red PotatoUme Plum and Spinach available. Just like the classic Hana-Fukin, these special edition vegetable dyed cloths are wrapped individually in a beautiful paper printed with vegetable that each cloth is dyed with. Ready and perfect to be gifted.

What is Hana-Fukin?
"Hana Fukin" 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.
