A little more on sasawashi... ........we are such a fan of this innovative material called Sasawashi! A fabric that is truly one-of-a-kind, it was founded as a reaction to the wistfulness and ephemeral lifespan of the textile industry. Made from absorbent washi paper threads infused with antibacterial kumazasa plant fibers. This process makes a fabric that is naturally deodorizing, prevents mildew growth and fiber deterioration! We love the Sasawashi brand for their innovativeness and forward thinking approach to textile design and consciousness, but we also feel the brand’s fundamental values speak to us deeply too; comfort, longevity, and simplicity...speaks to the Umei way of life we feel!
