Travel Diary: Kontex Factory

 Shimanami Kaido is a toll road connecting Japan's main island of Honshu with the island of Shikoku, all overlooking the Seto Inland Sea.

Throughout the year, Kaz Morihata travels to Japan to personally select items to sell in the Rikumo store. Kaz founded with his wife, Yuka Morihata, in 2009. Here are images from his recent trip to the Kontex factory in Japan. Located on the small island of Imabari, Kontex has been crafting high-quality towels since 1934.
