washing & care : 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. Reshape while damp and dry flat in shade.

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.
