Plum (梅 ume) holds a special significance in Japanese culture.

The flowering plum tree is associated with spring, renewal, and the arrival of warmer weather. Its delicate pink and white blooms are often used as a symbol of purity and beauty, and appear in many forms of traditional Japanese art. The fruit of the plum tree, pickled plums, is a popular ingredient in traditional cuisine and is thought to have health benefits.

This multi-purpose cloth makes excellent drying/cleaning cloths. Not only do they pick up liquid and dirt quickly and effectively, but they also wash clean without any hassle. Because of the 8 layers of mesh cloth stitched together, they are extremely durable and guaranteed to last. It will become softer with each use. 

Please wash thoroughly in warm water by hand before the first use to remove the starch. They use natural sweet potato starch from Kagoshima prefecture in Japan. Soak in hot water at 40 degrees to let the starch soften. Rinse until water comes out clean. 

Made in Nara Prefecture, Japan
