Brands: Kontex Towels - 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., Yoshii Towels - Yoshii towels are constructed in the traditionally slim Japanese style, with smooth textures in fresh, compact proportions. Each towel is woven with soft, twisted-ring “Shankar 6” threads, which are massaged down, puffed, and combed twice for ultimate softness. Cultivated with low agricultural chemicals and made of 100% hand-picked cotton, these threads guarantee a superior, environmentally-friendly towel., 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., Hummingbird - Modern life is filled with items that are often necessary but uninspired, with the essential and the exciting rarely intersecting. In their quest to design products that improve our daily lives, Hummingbird set out to redesign the new standard for ordinary daily-use items: useful, efficient, and beautiful. Like a diligent hummingbird unaware of its fascinated admirers, they aim to make hardworking, everyday items with a subtle but important hint of beauty., 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.
