Material - - - Madake smoked


Because we use natural materials, each one has a different shape and texture.
I think if you can handle it normally gently because it is not excessive processing.
Please wash it softly with a mild detergent and dry it naturally without putting it on and washing, hot water, bleach, and dishwasher.
Bamboo products may become mildew if water accumulates underneath them while standing in a state where there is moisture.
I think that you can use it beautifully and shine out when you wash the goods of Karaki with neutral detergent and dry wipe normally gently.
Nekari and Madake were born in the creation Hall at the foot of Mt. Asama in Gunma prefecture, where their parents were from, and their parents participated in the town's efforts to pass on local wisdom and techniques after retirement, and they harvested and collected nekari bamboo and Madake, smoked in a charcoal oven, removed oil, and made materials, and now use the materials they want to keep.
