Okai Mafu Shoten's Linen Dish Towel

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.

My shopping experience at Shokunin was wonderful all around. The items I purchased are beautiful. They arrived very quickly from Japan, and the wrapping and packaging were beautifully done. Shipping costs were very reasonable considering that it’s coming from Japan to the US. They also have great customer service. I’m getting ready to place another order with them.

I was taking advantage of strong USD to Japanese ¥, and I am glad I did order many things! :-) Everything arrived in less than anticipated time frame for delivery and is in perfect condition due to the efficiently and meticulously packed merchandise! I am still mesmerized how efficient Japanese way of packing so many items in this box with no space wasted, yet it is so obvious that it was done with TLC so nothing is damaged! I learned as I unpacked! Everybody needs to learn packing like Japanese! :-) Opening the package was a great pleasure with a sense of anticipation and mystery even though I knew what I ordered. You could feel the TLC when unwrapping each item like it is coming from a good friend! I felt confident as always ordering beautiful products from Shokunin, as they are of good quality which will last a long time if I take care of them well and hope could extend their life to the next generation. I kept telling my son that he would inherit those beautiful items ;-). Wish I could get everything they offer..:-).

Thank you very kindly for your shipment to my US address. I am highly pleased with all of my purchases and will shop again with you soon. What lovely ware to cherish and gift! It is a pleasure to handle and work with your wares. They are practical, high quality, beautifully finished and satisfying to the touch. I will continue to enjoy them for all of their long lifetime and am proud to gift them. They keep all promises and exceed expectations: [Okai Mafu Shoten] Linen Fukin towel dries so well and leaves glassware sparkly clean. [THE] Soy Sauce Cruet will not spill a single drop, however it is handled. [Daiya] Katsubako Brush cleans my fine coffee grinds, disregarding the highly static environment at 7000ft/2000m... and so on. Thank you again! The package arrived in under two weeks and in pristine shape. All items were wrapped with love and incredible attention to detail. The [Seiryugama] Sencha Cup came with a tiny, tiny chip, but that could not have happened in transit. All other items arrived in perfect condition. I have never yet received international shipments in such good shape here. Kudos to your team! I look forward to shopping again. All best to you and Shokunin enterprise.
