Hinoki Wood Bath Mat

hinoki bath mat

Hinoki, otherwise known as Japanese cypress, has long been cherished in Japan for its natural antibacterial agents and its resistance to humidity. Both of these attributes make it perfect for bath mat use. The highly therapeutic wood contains minerals and essential oils traditionally used in Japan to treat skin irritations and reduce stress. Though not FSC certified, Hinoki is grown in Japan under strict control. Since WW II, over one million acres of new forest have been planted and legislation regulates the sustainable harvest of this precious resource.
