Sasawashi is a unique fabric woven from a blend of twisted washi (Japanese paper) and fibers from the Kumazasa plant, a type of bamboo grown in the highlands of Japan.
Prior to hibernation, bears consume large amounts of the plant to benefit from of its purifying and cleansing powers. When used in fabric, the Kumazasa plant’s natural anti-bacterial properties prevent unpleasant odors and mildew growth.
