There is natural variation in the wood. Wood is a living material so over time the wood will change color and texture over time. This is the natural and beautiful aging process of wood.
The woodworkers of Tosaryu have been perfecting their craft in the mountains of Kochi, Japan since the 1970's. By drying wood naturally (without the use of chemical drying agents) for a full 3-6 months, the fragrant, oil-rich, sturdy composition of Hinoki is preserved and brought to life in a range of products from bath mats to stools and buckets. Acting as stewards of the local forests and lakes, the woodworkers at Tosaryu use sustainable methods of production to create functional, safe, and earth-friendly pieces.

Hinoki (Japanese Cypress)Care Instructions:
Hinoki contains a natural antibacterial resin that has the beneficial effect of preventing mold and other bacteria formation on wood surfaces. If resin builds up and becomes sticky, simply wash off excess with hot water. If you place these items on a very smooth floor, you may notice your Hinoki piece slides on the surface. Please place a non-skid pad underneath to avoid this. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
