A pair of room shoes is an essential part of every Japanese home. This minimalist version is made from Sasawashi fabric, a pill-free fabric that effortlessly absorbs moisture and odors from the skin. The combination of antibacterial Kumazasa fibers and breathable washi keeps these room shoes feeling fresh and feeling comfortable in any season.
Sasawashi was founded as a reaction to the wastefulness and ephemeral lifespan of the textile industry. Made from absorbent washi (Japanese paper) threads infused with antibacterial Kumazasa plant fibers, this innovative fabric contains natural deodorizing properties that prevent mildew growth and fiber deterioration. From room shoes to scrub towels, every piece in the Sasawashi collection stays true to its founding principles: comfort, longevity, and simplicity.

From the tiny village of Torigoe, this hand-woven basket tote is made from sturdy suzutake, a variety of bamboo native to Japan. Roomy enough to hold picnic essentials and sturdy enough to hold its shape, the Torigoe tote is a beautifully constructed bag that reinvents the rural craft traditions of Japan.
Torigoe bamboo works are made by splitting each stalk of bamboo into quarters and then shaving them into strips. These strips are then knit together in a cross-hatch pattern that gives the baskets a weightless strength. Today the torigoe weaving tradition is upheld by specialist weavers, whose disciplined artistry keeps the craft alive and growingMaterials: bamboo
