The tough threads are used for connecting the three parts and make it able to fold.

There are fold lines overall. This is because there is no core urethane board inside which stretch the rush grass sheet.

This is a natural status of the item. The fold lines can not be removed.   



-Features of rush grass

  1. Since rush grass has 2.5 times the moisture absorption power of cotton, it reduces sweat build up.
  2. Rush grass is capable of controlling moisture, and aids in sleeping in a dry and pleasant manner.
  3. Rush grass prevents the substance that causes the smell of sweat, as well as other unpleasant odors, from accumulating. 



-Aomori hiba coating

The rush grass surface features Aomori hiba coating (with antimicrobial / deodorizing effect).

Through our special technique, the product and materials have been processed with hiba extract sourced from hiba trees in Aomori Prefecture.

Hiba extract contains hinokitiol, which is known to be an exceptionally potent antibacterial substance among natural materials. It is used and researched extensively in various fields, including medical and cooking.

-Caution in use

*The color of the edges may look different from the color of the center, but this is not mean that the product is defective. The difference in color is not caused by color fading or exposure to sunlight. It is due to the natural characteristics of rush grass.
