Hinoki Bath Stool

€92,00 EUR

  • Beautiful bathing stool made by craftsmen
  • Tools for Every Day Life

We use these stools for bathing. In Japan the bath experience is strictly for relaxation, not for cleaning ourselves. We always clean ourselves in the shower before entering the bath and same at hot springs. Before shower were invented, we used a bucket to wash with and this small stool to sit on in comfortable position and to conserve water. It is still very common to sit in the shower so that you can properly scrub your body before entering into the bath tub.

Hinoki wood has a high resistance to humidity and its oils naturally repel water. It is antibacterial and perfect for kitchens and baths. 

Please note that sap naturally comes out of the wood. This does not stain or cause harm, it is part of the nature of the wood.

Size: 29.5 x 17.5 x H20.5 cm
Weight: about 140g

Material: Hinoki (Japanese Cypress)
Made in Japan, Tochigi prefecture

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
