Washi plays an important role in.
However, due to the changes in lifestyles, washi is now disappearing from the daily lives of Japanese people.
Unfortunately, Echizen washi is also not an exception.
To reverse the declining trend of washi’s usage in daily lives, we’ve decided to launch our new washi product, deodorizing washi.
It is a combination of the newest technology and Japan’s traditional craftsmanship.
By merging Echizen washi and natural fibers using hydrogel, we’ve successfully maximized the duration time of the odorizing effect, and made the product 100% capable of being recycled.
Our experimental data has proven that the product has great effects in removing the smells of garbage, used clothes and tobacco smokes.
Furthermore, the great part of this deodorized Japanese paper is that it does not decrease the deodorizing ability even if time passes.
Our product has different sizes and shapes available for you to choose based on your purpose of using it. You conveniently keep it with you at any place, in anytime.
It is also a very delicate decoration in the Kitchen. With its simplistic yet beautiful design, you can place it in any environment.
Our washi products are purely made of natural materials. You do not have to worry about the existence of any chemicals in our product that would potentially harm your child.
