Notes on Usage:

  • You may notice a bit of powder on the surface however, this is not a problem with the quality. Due to the nature of the material, the powder is expected.
  • Do not place inside the shower area. Place it only on the dry area outside the shower.
  • Do not immerse in water as it will absorb too much water leading to deterioration of the material.
  • Always place in well ventilated places. (Do not sun dry and it will cause cracks).
  • Avoid heated florring.
  • When not in use, please store in a dry place.

How to care:

  • Do not use it with detergents.
  • If the abosorption rate dropped over time, use a thin, fine sandpaper and gently brush off the oily surface.

Everyday Care:

  • There's not much you need to do. Just leave it in a shaded but well ventilated area.
  • As it is thin, exposing it under sun light for a long duration may cause the mat to warp.

 

Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous earth is taken from sedimentary layers formed of phytoplankton that resided in the sea and lakes hundreds of thousands of years ago. Because it is porous with an infinite number of fine porosities on the micrometer (10-6m) scale, it has high water and moisture retention properties, as well as deodorant and moisture control properties. A further characteristic is that it has different colors depending on the area.

Sakan Plastering

Sakan plastering is a technique to plaster soil or cement on the walls and floors using a trowel. The word “sakan” (plasterer) derives from a title which was conferred to Hatao Koze by the Japanese Emperor for the construction of earthen walls around the Imperial Palace in 645. From the middle of the 16th century to the 19th century, sakan plastering technique developed through various plasterworks such as outer baileys of castles, earthen walls for teahouses and interior walls, and the traditional technique was handed down through generations. Recently plastering has been attracting attention as a method to create an ecologically sound space free from the artificiality of modern building techniques.
