HANA HUKIN Kitchen Cloths
Recently and newly added to UGUiSU online store, the award winning (GOOD DESIGN AWARD 2008) "Hana Hukin" is a beautiful cotton cloth made of pure cotton fabric formerly used as mosquito netting , 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.
Hana Hukin is available in 5 colours that are named from flowers ("hana" means flowers): Sakura Pink (Cherry blossom), Ajisai Blue (Hydrangea), Sumire (Violet), Nanohana Yellow and Wakaba Green (young leaf). Each cloth is beautifully wrapped in wax coated paper.
