comments: the beautifully simple packaging drew me in. what's even more beautiful is the thought behind the product. one awa is a thin slice of natural hand made soap that is meant to be used in one day. beyond the economies of not being wasteful, it is also meant to eliminate the bacteria that normally gathers on a bar of soap over time. the soap is meant to be torn so that you can portion it out for the day based on your bathing and hygiene needs. check out ryohei yoshiyuki's website and blog, his work is profound and beautiful. enjoy.
