Gorgeous natural kitchen cloths, even the packaging is beautiful! Lovely small gifts.

These Fukin cloths are made from double-ply Kayaori, an open-weave cotton fabric traditionally used in mosquito nets, which begins starchy and firm but soon softens into the perfect kitchen cloth, great for wiping up spills.

In 4 colour variants: Camellia Orange, Indigo Blue, iris Blue and Yamabuki Yellow.

  • Rinse well in cold water before using for the first time to remove starch; the natural fibres will shrink and distort when washed – this is normal.

Meet Niwaki After completing a degree in Sculpture at London's Slade School of Fine Art, Jake Hobson spent a year working in a Japanese nursery on the outskirts of Osaka, learning the intricacies of old-style Japanese pruning from masters. Returning to the UK he worked in Architectural Plants for a number of years, then, with his Japanese wife, established Niwaki, manufacturing and sourcing Japanese garden tools. Over time other Japanese products have been added to their range. Hobson also runs pruning lectures, workshops and courses across the UK and USA.
