The Hinoki wooden collection is a soft, touchable bathtub and basin from Furo that is synonymous with high-quality Japanese techniques of craftsmanship. You can appreciate the soothing and health promoting aspects of this with your own Hinoki collection ‘furo’ – a stunning creation from natural wood. Having a hot bath, or ‘furo’ in Japanese, is an important part of the Japanese lifestyle. Problems of the day melt away when you sink into a bath – especially a very special bath made from Cypress wood (it has traditionally been used to make Buddhist temples and statures!). It is fine grained and wonderfully scented; the health benefits of Cypress wood include disinfection and repelling insects. Ryu Kosaka, a wooden bucket craftsman, has transferred this trade he learned from his father to the creation of the flawless Hinoki bathtubs and washbasins that emphasise the strengths of the wood. From Furo.
