When using for the first time, the Kaya Kitchen cloth appears rigid and taut. A thorough washing in warm water transforms the Kaya Kitchen cloth to a soft texture.
Rayon yarn is used which is 1.3 times more water-absorbing than cotton, and is resistant to oil stains so you can remove oil stains just by wiping them. In addition, because of the layered texture weave unique to Kaya fabric, it has excellent breathability and quick drying, so it can be used hygienically.

Kaya cloth was initially used as a barrier over beds to keep mosquitoes at bay. Workers, notably female, would stitch Kaya cloth into these mosquito netting. At the end of the day remnant fabric would gather and rather than disposing these unusable remnants, these ingenious women stitched multiple layers of Kaya cloth and re-purposed waste into a valuable new product. . the rest is history.
