Though at first it may seem simple, this kitchen towel is the result of expert design and rigorous trial and error. In the 1960’s, when Japan was going through a period of rapid economic development, one of the lead editors of the popular homemaking magazine Kurashi no Techo (Guidebook for Living) realized that there were no well-functioning kitchen towels available. Frustrated by this lack, she contacted a textile manufacturer and proposed that they work together to create the best kitchen towel in Japan. After producing 40 different towels, all made out of various materials and styles of weaving, they selected four final options to move on to product testing. In the end, this kitchen towel was the top performer.
Its makeup of 65% cotton and 35% rayon is lint free and maximizes absorption and endurance—it can be used and washed many times without affecting quality.
