Sarashi is a bleached cloth usually made of cotton or linen.
Sarashi has been used for various purposes in daily life for over 500 years in Japan.
It was used to be cloth wrapped around the body under a kimono and even now used as a cloth strainer to make Dashi soup for traditional Japanese cuisines.
The whiteness and purity of the cloth have ritual significance, therefore it also has been used in Shinto or Japanese Buddhism rituals.
