NAWRAP FUKIN ふきん
a different type of towel
What are Fukins?
Nawrap fukins are natural towels from Japan, made with durability and functionality in mind.
Each cloth or towel features a multilayer weave and a textured cleaning surface with superior absorbency and cleansing power when wet.
All these extraordinary properties make fukins perfect for the kitchen, the home or your body.
Easy on the skin and easy on the environment.
Anti-bacterial, anti-odour. The 2-sided, 6-layered colour/grey fukins' cotton and rayon yarn is infused with binchotan oak charcoal. Binchotan is the highest grade of charcoal and prized for its natural purification properties as it absorbs odours and bacteria.
The 4-layered printed fukins are reversible and slightly longer. They contain no charcoal.
Who produces Them?
Founded in the 1930s, Nawrap originally manufactured mosquito nets in the Nara prefecture of Japan. Since then they have moved into the cloth and textile industry. Nawrap towels feature a traditional weaving technique not seen outside of Japan and are synonymous with quality and attention to detail. Their towels are produced from naturals fibers and are chemical-free.
Please note: the fukins are prepped for sale with starch. When you first use your fukin, wet it and use a bit of soap to rinse out the starch. Once washed at 40 degrees Celsius, the towel becomes fluffy and highly absorbent.
