What is Cloth and Sash Bag

The cloths included in this Handmade Tofu Kit is a set of product produced by Yoshida textile specialty shop for food in Tsubame-shi, Niigata Prefecture. Kawashimaya made the order to the manufactures to create fine-grained and smooth handmade tofu.

This bag is very suitable for the filtration process. The function is similar to the paper used in Nell Coffee Drip coffee making method. But when making tofu, we need to use a cloth material, not paper.
The manufactures are not using chlorine-based bleaching power in the bleaching process. In addition, this cloth has a soft texture that makes it difficult to make any scratch to the food.

 

The size for both bags: 33cm wide x 40cm long.
This is the sash bag.

Customer's Review


I am satisfied for every details of the product.

Daiso also sell a tofu box, but I'm not satisfied with the product (can't help because of the low price). So I decide to buy a proper tofu box. I searched a lot and purchased this product. I'm very happy because I can use it for a long time!

 


The completion of tofu is very great!

I tried to make tofu from soy milk using this tofu box. The completion has a rich and delicious taste. I even make tofu for my friends. Next time, I will try to make tofu from soybeans.

 


The good part from Hinoki Cypress is very dominant in this product.

I think this is a good tofu box because it is using Hinoki Cypress. It's also good because this product do not use glue or nails at the seams.

 


We purchased 10 of this product at once because there was an event of making tofu at the kids' party.

I used the video in this page as a reference and print the steps for the event. It is surprisingly easy to imitate!

 


I gave this tofu box along with a nigari as a gift to my Japanese friend living abroad.

Since it seems that they can find soybeans easily, they are very pleased to make homemade tofu as much as they want with this. The box is made in very good shape. When I use this to make homemade tofu, I feel like making a tofu like the real Japanese tofu maker!

 


The fragrance of the tree is very good.

At the moment we opened the cardboard box containing the product, we smells the good smell of cypress. The texture of the product is also good, no scratches. I did a good shopping.
