dryingblk mds

A dry material made of diatomaceous earth that can be used easily.

It is a natural material with high moisture absorption and humidity control, made using diatomaceous earth. If you put it in a seasoning container such as salt or sugar, it does not harden, hence you can use it comfortably. You may use it in separate pieces of 4.

It is like breaking pieces from a chocolate bar.

Although using the block over time may change its color, the quality is not affected. You may wash it with water after use and dry it under the sun.

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.
