In our eyes, nothing is too small to be designed beautifully. We call this a “dishcloth,” but Musubi’s Herb Green 25-cm-square organic muslin cloth is so soft,absorbent and pretty, it can be used as a handkerchief or even a small hand towel.
Made from four layers of finely woven organic cotton gauze, the Herb Green cloth is antimicrobial, making it great for wiping down surfaces and mopping up small spills. Its pattern of lavender, rosemary, dill, oregano, thyme, geranium and santolina comes from Kayo Aoyama,a textile designer renowned for her delicate hand-drawn illustrations. See Kayo's Vegetable Dishcloth design for another delightful pattern.
Kyoto-based furoshiki-maker and purveyor Musubi collaborates with numerous designers and illustrators to produce an eclectic range of wrapping cloths and other textiles in vibrant patterns and styles — from traditional to geometrically modern. Every design takes into consideration types of fabric and printing processes and is carefully matched with the ideal maker. To see other Musubi items, visit the full collection here.
