The Omi region of Shiga Prefecture has been known for its hemp textiles since the 15th century. In ancient times, it was offered as a gift to the shogun. Nowadays, while preserving the quality of traditional techniques, new dyeing and finishing techniques have been introduced, and with even higher quality designs, the region continues to produce high quality hemp fabrics that represent the modern age.
This thin type of quilt is called “Hadakake”.
“Hadakake” stands for “cover the skin” in Japanese. This our artisan made quilt is thinner and lighter than the standard kake futon.
In Japan, this is usually used to adjust the temperature in your futon or bed when the season is changing from spring to summer, summer to autumn. It is when standard kake futon is too hot to sleep, but summer blanket is too cold. You can also use this when your bed room is too cold because of the air conditioner in summer time.
The cool feel of hemp will lead you to a good night’s sleep. It is highly breathable and creates a refreshingly cool environment that does not trap heat. Quickly absorbs and dissipates perspiration.
The surface fabric that directly touches the skin and the padding are all made of natural hemp. No chemical fibers are used, so it is gentle to the body and safe.
