A fukin (dish towel) made of mosquito net linen cloth. Sewed and created by Okai Mafu Shoten using the already weaved mosquito net.
As linen's fiber is longer than cotton, it hardly becomes fluffy, and thus, very suitable for drying dishes. Its water-absorbing power is four times that of cotton. Its strength also doubles that of cotton. It's also excellent in divergence, and it dries really quickly.
Starting as a dishcloth, it can be used as a tablecloth, and ultimately as a dust cloth. Please try using the unmixed blessing Linen Fukin.
I have ordered a number of times from Shokunin, and each time I absolutely love the products. Each is made with so much care and beautiful materials. I use them in my daily life - the Yamaichi sawara wooden tub and soap dish I use daily, the beautiful marukans hold coffee and tea while the fukin I use to hold the Azmaya copper kettle when it is heated. Thanks as always!
