Yuton: summer soft-furnishings
The yuton is a Japanese traditional mat consisting of layers of washi (Japanese paper) onto which oil is applied.
When it comes into contact with your skin, the smooth surface of the yuton absorbs the heat from your body and helps you stand the heat of summer.
The yuton is extremely durable, and has been used in many parts of Japan since the ancient past. In fact, it is proclaimed as a commodity that can withstand a century of use.
Beniya Koyodo, a hyogu(paperer) shop located in Sabae-shi, Fukui, is the only remaining manufacturer of yuton today.
The Japanese climate and the predecessors’ wisdom developed and passed the yuton down through generations.
The yuton also conveys the exquisite techniques and sense of mission of the stubbornly uncompromising craftsmen, and the spiritual richness that many Japanese people are leaving behind.
