Handcrafted from a sustainable Japnese Cypress (Hinoki) in Japan, this is a traditional Japanese bath stool in an elegant form.
With a refreshing scent, Hinoki is naturally antibacterial and its resins make it resistant to mould and mildew and ideal for use in wet or damp spaces.
These low stools are traditionally used in Japanese baths (which commonly have a washing area separated from a tub) as a seat when washing body before entering the tub. The compact size and the beautiful minimum design fit nicely in any settings of home and can also be used as a small stool by a low coffee table in a living room for example.
A set of Hinoki stool and bowl will enhance a simple bath time with mindfulness.
(Hinoki Bath Bowl available separately.)
L 17cm x W 28cm x H 23cm
Hinoki wood (Japanese Cypress) repeats expansion and contraction every time it absorbs moisture or dries.
Please do not stand on the stool in a bathroom.
The product’s life span differs depending on usage environment and frequency of use, but please stop using if the stool starts to wobble or feel unsteady, and contact us for repair.
