Hana Fukin (Dish Cloth)
Maker: Nakagawa Masashichi Shoten
Made in Japan
Cloth for household use, made of a pure cotton fabric formerly used as mosquito netting (a specialty of Nara, Japan). Mosquito netting has declined in demand, due to changing lifestyles, but Nakagawa appreciated the fabric's absorbency and durability and reintroduced it in dishcloths.
The cloths are large yet thin, easily folded for use and then spread out to dry. They can be used both to wipe away moisture and to keep one's home clean. Generously sized, the versatile cloths can dry tableware, cover or wrap things, and much more. Over time, the cloths become soft and supple, and eventually, they make good rags.
Material: 100% Cotton
