Hinoki Bath Stool
279 East 6th Avenue
Vancouver BC V5T 1J7
Handcrafted in Nagano prefecture, only using the sustainable Japanese cypress (Hinoki) wood grown in Japan, this is a traditional Japanese bath stool in a stunningly elegant form.
With a refreshing scent, Hinoki is naturally antibacterial and its resins make it resistant to mould and mildew making it ideal for use in wet or moist spaces. These low stools are traditionally used in Japanese baths (which commonly have a washing area separate from a tub) as a seat when washing 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 beside a low coffee table in a living room for example.
With the matching bath bowls and soap dish that we offer, a set of Hinoki bath accessories will enhance a simple bath time with mindfulness in your home.

Kiso Hinoki 木曽檜, kiso japanese cypress
Hinoki (Japanese cypress) is an evergreen tree that is widely distributed in Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu with the Tohoku region (Fukushima prefecture) as the northern limit, but only natural cypress that grows in “Kiso valley” that straddles Nagano and Gifu prefectures can be called “Kiso Hinoki”. The steep slopes of Kiso Mountain are rainy, especially in winter, when it is surrounded by severe cold and deep snow. Due to its harsh natural environment, Kiso cypress grows very slowly, taking twice or three times as long as cypress growing elsewhere.
Hinoki repeats expansion and contraction every time it absorbs moisture or dries. The wood is naturally antibacterial and has a refreshing scent. Its natural resin makes it resistant to mould and mildew, and ideal for use in wet or damp spaces.
