Neutral and tactile, slimline and functional, stunning and sustainable, this is a pretty perfect bath mat. The secret? Sasawashi fabric. An ecologically friendly blend of washi (paper) and the abundant and naturally deodorizing fibers of the kumazasa bamboo tea plant, Sasawashi fabric has twice the absorbency of cotton and naturally prevents odors and mildew. The low-pile woven tufts have a sisal-esqe appearance and a spa-worthy exfoliating feel. play nice with wet feet and the non-slip back makes it the perfect place to stick your apres bath landing. We give it a 10.
Note: This 47" x 18" bath mat is one of the only ones we've found that goes the whole length of our tub. Wow. It has a low profile on the ground. This means that most in-swinging bathroom doors won't catch on it (something that drives us crazy about other floofier bath mats!).
Take Care: While this mat's fibers naturally wick water and prevent mildew, if/when you do need to wash it, it's fine to throw it in the machine (cold with mild detergent, please). Hang flat to dry.
