MARUYAMA FIBER INDUSTRY was founded in Nara Prefecture, Japan in 1930. The company began manufacturing traditional mosquito nets that were woven from cotton and hemp fabrics. As mosquito nets lost their relevance , the craftsmen adapted the traditional weaving technologies into producing a line of multipurpose organic cloths. The absorbent and quick-drying fabric is ideal for every home. The pastel tone Multi-purpose Tea Towel is a result of Maruyama’s weaving technology and the traditional Japanese "Rakuyo Dyeing" process.
