Brands: Kontex Towel - Since 1934, Kontex has been crafting high-quality towels in Imabari, Japan. The secret to Kontex' softness is in the manufacturing process. Each towel is made from fine, garment quality thread that’s loosely twisted for the highest level of softness. Such threads would break on modern weaving machines, thus Kontex towels are gently woven on traditional, low-speed machines to maintain the integrity of the thread and achieve a level of softness that modern machines cannot produce. , Morihata Binchotan - Revered in Japan since the Edo period, Binchotan Charcoal is a natural way to purify, cleanse, and improve the quality of your daily life. Our Binchotan Charcoal is made the time-tested way in its birthplace, the Kishu region of Japan in the Wakayama Prefecture. , Morihata Brand Tea - Deep in the woods of Kirishima, a highlands where the temperature differences between day and night are severe, stands a plantation of lush green tea leaves. Five generations of master tea harvesters have tended and overseen its fields, harvesting pure organic green tea in the spring months of every year since the Meiji era. From the steaming of the leaves to the handmade tea bags sewn by the Hayashi family. , Sasawashi - Sasawashi was founded as a reaction to the wastefulness and ephemeral lifespan of the textile industry. Made from absorbent washi (Japanese paper) threads infused with antibacterial kumazasa plant fibers, this innovative fabric contains natural deodorizing properties that prevent mildew growth and fiber deterioration. From room shoes to scrub towels, every piece in the Sasawashi collection stays true to its founding principles: comfort, longevity, and simplicity. , Daitou Shingu - With a mission to provide the most comfortable sleep possible, Daitou Shingu has been making 100% cotton bedding and wear since 1925. Every item in the collection is made by hand using traditional Japanese techniques and dyed with natural dyes and no bleaching or chemical processing. The results is super soft, all-natural bedding and sleepwear that soothe you into the best sleep of your life.
