These large square cloths make a functional and attractive addition to the kitchen, at a size ideal for use as a dish cloth, towel or lunch wrap - you can even use them as a welcome alternative to wrapping paper, furoshiki-style. Caya cloth is famously absorbent, quick to dry, highly durable and softens beautifully over time.


• 100% caya cotton


• length 58cm
• height 58cm


This fine, net-like textile is woven from pure cotton and stiffened with natural plant starches for presentation. With washing and wear, you can expect its texture to become incredibly soft, with a waffle-ish character as shown in the last picture. Caya can be machine washed in cold water on a gentle cycle (a laundry bag will help prevent snags), but should not be tumble dried.


Ban Inoue

From the beautiful ancient capital Nara, Ban Inoue make breathable garments in simple styles, allowing the soft texture and natural comfort of their textiles to take focus. Still traditionally woven to this day, caya cotton is renowned in Japan for a beauty of near spiritual quality, inspiring poetry and ukiyo-e woodblock prints of the Edo period. Today, Ban Inoue wish to preserve the gentle aesthetic and comfort of caya with contemporary, wearable styles.
