|Product handling method
||This indigo dyeing product has been processed to remove harshness and natural color fixing as much as possible after dyeing, but please handle with care as there may be some color fading or color transfer due to intense rubbing during use.
*Because both the bamboo and indigo dyeing fabric are natural materials, there is a possibility of discoloration due to ultraviolet rays. We hope you will enjoy the taste as it ages.

"Marugame Uchiwa" started as a souvenir for visiting Konpira in the Edo period,and was recommended by the Kyogoku Clan at that time as a side job for samurai, it developed into a representative local industry of Marugame,It was designated as a national traditional craft in May 1997.
Marugame, where many uchiwa-making craftsmen used to live, uchiwa-making orders came in from all over the country, and the uniqueness of Uchiwa from each production area was combined. As a result,Marugame Uchiwa, which has acquired many features, now boasts 90% of the domestic market share and is Japan's largest in terms of production volume and variety of shapes.
