Linen Hanafukin Towel
Hanafukin Kitchen Towel in 100% linen
Uses mosquito net fabric from Nara prefecture
Nakagawa Masashichi Shoten's Hanafuki is a beautiful and functional reproduction of Nara's specialty mosquito net fabric. Taking advantage of the characteristics of mosquito net fabric, such as breathability, water absorption, and quick-drying, they have succeeded in utilizing this material, whose demand has been decreasing with the times, as a beautiful and functional towel.
Excellent water absorption and quick drying
It is about 4 times the size of a general kitchen towel, which is 58 cm x 58 cm, it is thinner than a general kitchen towel and has excellent quick-drying properties because it is made of two coarse mosquito net fabrics.
When folded, it absorbs water well, and when unfolded, it dries easily and can be kept clean.
Fluffy texture the more you use it
The more you wash it and continue to use it, it will become soft and gentle to the touch. Wipe and prepare dishes, wipe the table when you get tired or use as a rag. It is a kitchen that can be used in various ways while changing its texture.
Usable towels can be used anywhere
In addition to wiping dishes, wiping tables, and serving as a normal towel, it is also useful for preparing soup stock and draining vegetables.
As it has good water absorption, it can be used as a towel for everyday use. It dries quickly, so it can be used comfortably even in the humid seasons.
