Sasawashi is an organic textile made of washi – literally ‘Japanese paper’ – infused with kumazasa flakes; kumazasa referring to a variety of bamboo grass species native to Japan. Washi is a highly versatile, durable material and its thinness and light weight allows it to be used in a variety of ways such as writing paper, as material for sliding paper screens and interior partitions, lampshades, umbrellas and even as tableware. In order to create sasawashi, ground kumazasa flakes are mixed into the process of washi-making, producing sheets of sasawashi that retain the antibacterial and anti-allergenic properties of kumazasa. Then, the sheets are cut into tapes of varied thickness, which are twisted and spun into yarns like threads. These threads are what’s woven into fabrics via power looms. The end result are products, which are sustainable, lint-free and highly absorbent. Due to the properties of washi, these towels provide excellent protection against UV rays, while the natural antibacterial quality of kumazasa cleanses the skin and removes odours.
