Hinoki Bath Stool (S)

Hinoki Bath Stool (S)


Hinoki is an ancient cypress wood that is native to central Japan. It is one of Japan’s most revered trees for its durability, anti-bacterial qualities and natural citrus scent. Hinoki is characterised by a lustrous white body and straight grain, with a life span of more than a thousand years. As a prized material that is believed to have cleansing and purifying qualities, Hinoki has long been used in the building of ancient palaces, shrines and temples. It is also a classic material used in producing traditional Japanese baths due to its strong resistance to humidity and natural oil content which repels water.

The Hinoki Bath Stool (S) is handcrafted from Hinoki cypress. This classic bath stool features a traditional design that is typically paired with the Hinoki bath bowl to cleanse the body before entering the bathtub. With a natural resistance to mould and water, the Hinoki wood emanates a rich and soothing citrus scent that has rejuvenating qualities.
