About us

Our history

In Japan, during tea house ceremonies, a piece of cloth was soaked in hot water and offered to travelers who stopped to rest. This piece of cloth was called an Oshibori.

Preserved over the centuries in Asia, the Oshibori is still the most popular gesture of welcome today.

To simplify this welcoming gesture, the proposed clothing has become a simple wet cotton towel.

In 2013, Franck SALAMA during a trip to Japan in the Nagoya region decided to give Oshibori its letters of nobility.

Entrepreneur at heart and field worker. It is with a principal that Franck leads the strategy of Oshibori Concept International.

Spring 2014, Liza Marshall joined the Oshibori Concept International adventure and breathes new life into it. Through her many experiences in the luxury world, Liza ensures the commercial and operational development of the company.
