SASAWASHI is an all natural fabric made from a combination of traditional Japanese paper (Washi) and leaves of the Kumazasa plant.

KUMAZASA is a plant of the graminee family growing in the cool highlands of Japan. This hardy plant is known for its strong antibacterial properties. It has been used to preserve food such as SASASUSHI, SASADANGO (dumplings), and CHIMAKI (rice dumplings), all which are wrapped in SASA leaves. Among all KUMAZASA' s benefits, SASAWASHI products focus especially on its antibacterial properties and are produced "as they are" in their natural state.

WASHI is a strong, durable, water-resistant and versatile material with its own beauty. Shoji (sliding WASHI paper doors) keep you cool in hot, humid summers and warm in winter thanks to their humidity control, water absorption, insulation and UV protection. As WASHI can absorb both oil and water, it is used as blotting paper and oil absorbent cooking paper.
