Nekiro" New cloth with rayon・Cotton and washi(Japanese paper) developed by ORIKEN

Nowadays, we see artificial materials everywhere, for example many and various kinds of plastics and synthetic fibers.
These help our daily life conveniently, however in a flood of such products, we are blind to the beauties and preciousness of nature.
It is a cue to think "return to nature" !
To remind everybody about wonderful products of nature, we got an idea to develop new cloth woven with natural materials, rayon and washi.
Rayon is well known material made from natural cellulose (carbon hydrate).
Handmade washi is made from bark of some kinds of tree, Manila hemp is used for machine-made washi.

Washi products can be found everywhere, quality letter paper, interior decorations like wall paper, lamp shade, sliding doors in Japanese rooms, etc.
Fiber of washi can hold moisture, so that it can keep ambient humidity properly by absorbing and emitting moisture like breathing.
Additionally, odor is dissolved by the moisture in the fiber.

After long weaving trial we have achieved to get comfortable feel of the fabric, and named it Nekiro.
It is woven with rayon as warp and rayon/washi alternately as weft.
The weft washi is supplied as narrow tape of various width depending on the products, and is inserted as it is, not twisted (!).
This exclusive weaving technology gives the cloth gentle and smooth feel and harmless to human skin and good finish if dyed.
Such merit motivated some clothing companies recently to introduce Nekiro for various apparel.

Because of the natural material, it doesn't cause any environmental destructions at disposal.
Washi in the cloth is not weakened by washing if washing machine is used (select "soft" or similar program).

are expecting our Nekiro mWe akes all the people in the world smile !
Try its gentle and smooth feel !!

Thank you.
