kiyoi : caya charcoal cloth


or make 4 interest-free payments of $5.50 AUD fortnightly with More info


These kitchen cloths combine the outstanding absorbency of caya netting cloth with the anti-microbial and odour-neutralising  powers of Kishu binchotan charcoal.  Sustainably selected limbs from Japanese Holm oaks (growing on the hills of Kii peninsula) are traditionally kiln dried for weeks to produce a high grade of Binchotan charcoal, especially prized for its purifying ionic properties. KIYOI's cloths are infused with this charcoal, which combined with fast-drying caya cotton, produces an exceptionally thirsty cloth which stays soft and odour free for longer than regular kitchen cloths.
