Tea Cloth (Chakin)
Chakin is a cloth used for wiping tea bowl during the tea ceremony.
We recommend cleaning handmade matcha bowls (like the Matcha Bowl with Spout) just with water and this soft tea cloth. The cloth is made from hemp, giving it just the right texture to be gentle on precious ceramics. At the same time, it’s sturdy enough to rub off any remaining matcha stuck on the surface. Made in Japan, this tea cloth has also been an important tool in the tea ceremony for generations.
