About the product

We have developed a 100% linen × konnyaku snood. This light and refreshing konnyaku linen snood is recommended for the coming season when the sun is getting stronger day by day.

This snood is comfortable even when sweating due to its high quick-drying property and crisp feeling, and is perfect for preventing sunburn on the neck in the hot summer sun. Even if you sweat a little, it absorbs perspiration quickly and evaporates quickly, so it always keeps you feeling dry.

The reason for this is the konnyaku-processed linen. This snood is made of 100% linen and konnyaku, a super natural material.

Konnyaku is an ingredient with a unique elastic and mysterious texture commonly eaten in Japan. It has no flavor or calories, but when added to oden, sukiyaki, and simmered dishes, it soaks up the flavor and is often found in Japanese home cooking. This snood is made from konnyaku potato, the same raw material used for konnyaku, and linen is processed with konnyaku.

Natural fibers of unequal length and thickness are bundled and further twisted to make one long thread. Such threads are shagging when they come in contact witht the skin, so this processing method involves gluing domestic konnyaku, dissolved in water and made into a paste, onto each thread one by one as a glue agent for the cover to prevent the threads from it.

This snood is easy to put on and take off, as it can be simply pulled over the head. Unlike a scarf, there is no need to worry about knots coming undone while wearing it. We recommend using it as a turban, as it is also cute. The material is breathable, so it is comfortable and does not get stuffy even when worn for long periods of time.

Care Precautions
-You can wash it at home.
-Please do not use bleach.
-For long-lasting use, please put it in a laundry net and wash it in a washing machine on low water flow, or wash it by hand.
-When drying it, please hang it in the shade so that it does not bear its own weight as much as possible. It is recommended to hang it on a mesh table.
*Linen absorbs moisture very well. Therefore, after washing, there will be a lot of moisture left in the material. Unlike woven fabrics, knitwear has the property of stretching, so if you hang it out to dry as it is, the weight of the product itself will cause it to stretch.

This is a joint project by the Koto Textile Industry Cooperative Association, in which several companies have joined forces. Our production area “Koto” has a long history among textile production areas, and is characterized by integrated production from yarn to finishing (yarn processing, dyeing, weaving, and finishing) within the production area. While cherishing this tradition, we are eagerly developing new products with new ideas and sensitivities, such as intertwining and weaving with not only linen but also other natural fibers, synthetic fibers, and blended yarns of new materials, yarn processing techniques, and weaving methods.

This snood was also born out of the new challenge of using stiff linen, which had been used for textiles in the production area, for knit fabrics. It was a product of repeated trial and error to achieve a softness suitable for knitting while taking advantage of the unique crispness of linen yarn. We will continue to develop products that meet the expectations of our customers as a production center that proposes lifestyle and culture.

We have meetings with konjac gluing factories, dyeing factories, and knitting factories to produce hemp and konjac snoods, and we are sincerely working on the project so that we can deliver the products to everyone. Regarding the production of konjac glued yarn, it is a specialty of the Koto production area and we will proceed with processing without problems, but knitting hemp yarn with WHOLEGARMENT is a new field and repeated tests many times. , We have proceeded with the development after trial and error. If there are more applications than expected for support purchases, delivery may be delayed due to manufacturing process circumstances or unavoidable circumstances associated with delivery work. The schedule described in the text is the schedule at the time of publication of the project. If there is a change in the content, we plan to share it in the activity report as soon as possible. Due to the nature of application purchase, there is a risk of delivery delay. As a general rule, purchases with delivery delays cannot be canceled, but if it exceeds 3 months from the scheduled return delivery month, only applicants will be canceled. Finally, we will do our best to make everyone happy by picking up hemp and konjac snood, so please support us.
