I remember seeing these in stores a couple years ago, but not
recently... I thought they were hideously ugly at the time, but then
visited Japan and pretty much everywhere I stayed had one... and they're
still ugly, but they're great. Feel great underfoot, and don't seem to
hold damp like regular carpet-style bath mats do. So I'd be willing to
sacrifice a little appearance for comfort and cleanliness.
here's an example:
unfortunately, googling for "microfiber bath mat" yields a lot of
results that don't look anything like those and none that do. I could
give up and order from jshoppers, but I really don't like any of those
BTW, I've been using Japanese washcloths for years as well, I can find
those in Asian grocery stores, ever since a Japanese girlfriend
introduced me to them and everything else immediately seemed inferior.
They really do have some things figured out over there better than we do.
