Native to Japan, Hinoki cypress wood is valued for its pleasing, fresh scent and anti-bacterial properties. Used to construct this simple bath mat, it creates an alternative to cloth mats which tend to stay damp and soil easily. The grooved surface is non-slip and the modular shape allows you to combine multiple units to create a larger surface if desired. The wood used for the mat is responsibly harvested from the thinning of managed natural forests. Hinoki wood can contain brown and red tones—each bath mat will vary from the one shown.
