Enjoy eco-friendly bath Mats made of clay thousands of years old...

This amazing bath mat is made of earth (100%) - nothing added but skill - more specifically, diatomaceous earth; a naturally occurring, highly absorbent material created over centuries on the sea bed.  This Japanese earth retains water very efficiently, dries quickly and has very effective deodorizing properties.

For centuries traditional Japanese homes have been plastered with this special clay which helps keep a lovely ambient temperature throughout both winter and summer. 

When you step onto a Konoha bath mat you’ll appreciate the difference - they feel great!

 Each craftsman owns over 100 trowels, switching between them at the various stages and crafts no more than 20 pieces a day.
Each product is made with care and dedication. We work with earth, moulding it into our designs, thus creating Konoha ‘Gifts of Nature products. 


Once crafted each piece is left to dry over 45 days!

At Konoha Gifts of Nature, we like to take natural materials from the earth and find  new places for them in our future... so you can enjoy nature at its best!
 
 

 

 

What is diatomaceous earth?

Diatomaceous earth, or diatomite, is formed from the fossilised remains of phytoplankton that accumulate over hundreds of thousands of years at the bottom of seas and lakes. In Japan, the three regions that are renowned for products made of diatomaceous earth, are Hokkaido, the Tohoku region and the Noto peninsula. When heated, diatomaceous earth turns into a substance of porous structure (with numerous pores on the micrometer scale) with high water absorption and moisture retention properties. Our “K o n o h a ” products are created from diatomaceous earth by the meticulous handcrafting of our expert plasterers. Since no overglazing or processing treatments are used in the production of “Konoha” products, after use they will eventually return to their original, natural state. Colors of the “konoha” products There are colors of “konoha” products: white products are made of earth from Akita, pink products are made of the earth from Noto, Ishikawa, and blue products are made of the earth from Akita mixed with pigment, respectively.

 

Natural Colours:

Each bath mat gets it colour form the special diatomaceous earth found in the 3 key regions of Japan - Hokkaido, Tohoku, and the Noto peninsula.  

White comes from the Akita Coast.   Pink from the Noto Peninsula, Ishikawa and Blue comes from Akita and pigment.  No asbestos is used in this bath mat.



 

BATH MAT

These are solid bath mats made of diatomaceous earth. The mats absorb water from your feet after a bath and also ensure your feet are dry as you step off the mat.

Unlike an ordinary bath mat, this mat feels dry moments after it is used. As the water evaporates quickly, the surface may feel cool, but since the material is “earth”, it does not become cool like a stone.

It is recommended to dry it in the sun once a week to prevent it from getting mouldy, but otherwise there is no need to clean the bath mat. Since the mat weighs approximately 6kg it is stable.

Do not place it on an uneven surface or on top of another fabric mat, as damage may be caused. If your floor is uneven we recommend placing small silicone feet in each corner under your bath mat to help make it more stable. This will also allow air to circulate underneath. Sudden impact on the bath mat could cause cracks of breakages.

How do you get the balance between "water saving" and a great "Shower Experience"?

There are several "water saving " showers available on the market however many are too weak or soft.  On the other hand some “Rain Showers” (below left) can create a harsh “pins-and-needle” like sensation on your skin however “amane Mist-Sensation Showers” (below right) use much smaller “ultra-fine spray holes” that help increase the power of your shower… without hurting your skin!

As Goldilocks would say: “not too hard, not too soft… just right!”

FAQ: Is Amane suitable for my shower?

Amane Mist-Sensation Showers are suitable for most standard, electric and power showers that use the standard 1/2 Inch hose.  Amane Showers work within a wide power range so from very weak water supplies to showers fitted with a pump.

Operating temperature: 1 to 60 °C
Operating water pressure: 0.05 to 0.4 Mpa

FAQ: Suitable for electric shower?

We recommend the standard Amane Range (Blue, White, Pink, Clear) or the O2-S Deluxe series for electric Showers.  In some circumstances we recommend using the eco-stop-lever without using the stop-lever function.

Amane Showers are set to a maximum of 35% water saving effect to avoid building up too much back pressure on your shower.  Typical showers with a 50% water saving effect sometimes create too much pressure and damage your shower.  As a result Amane is designed for a maximum of 35% water saving.  Please contact a plumber if you are unsure what your system requirements are.


If you have an electric shower you can use the eco-stop-lever model however please be aware that the water temperature may vary when turning back on your shower. Also if you hear any unusual noise when using the stop-lever we recommend using without the use of the stop-lever.
Also Amane Shower Heads are not suitable for shower heads that are plumbed/fixed straight into the wall (i.e. no hose).

How can I estimate the likely improvement I’ll see with my shower? 

AMANE HEAVENLY RAIN SHOWERS are designed to boost the power of any shower.   The ideal operating water pressure should be at least 0.05Mpa, however to give you a rough guide, place your old shower head on the ground with the spray pointing towards the ceiling and turn on the water, as illustrated below.  Typically if your current shower head spray is 3-6 feet high, AMANE HEAVENLY RAIN will approximately double the hight to 6-12 feet.  If you already have strong water pressure, AMANE HEAVENLY RAIN will again increase the power however you will also notice that you will get soaking wet quicker, rinse your hair more throughly and also notice your skin will be nice and soft.  Just some of the extra benefits.  To help even more please see videos of the difference AMANE HEAVENLY RAIN SHOWER HEAD make to rain showers, power showers, electric showers and low water pressure showers. Watch "Before and after" Customer Videos here!  

 

 

FAQ: Are Amane Shower Heads easy to Install?

 

Simply twist-off old shower head, wipe hose threads with a damp cloth, twist on new head and you’re good to go!  

 

FAQ: Are Amane Shower Heads easy to clean?

For best performance, from time to time you may need to clean the shower plate.

If you notice that the power is weaker or that the spray jets are at unusual angles, simply clean the plate using the 30 second procedure below.

 

Our unique shower plate holes are 0.19 mm in diameter on the outside and 0.4 mm on the inside. This allows the water to unclogg any impurities (especially in hard water areas) and restore your spray!

If you live in a hard water area also clean the internal filter or replace with new as required.
