Toray Adds Legendary Van Gogh Works to Toraysee™ Masterpieces Series

Tokyo, Japan, April 11, 2022 – Toray Industries, Inc., announced new additions to its Toraysee™ Masterpieces series of microfiber cleaning cloths. They are three 24cm x 19cm items featuring Vincent Van Gogh works. They will retail in Japan from mid-April for 990 yen, including consumption tax, at eyewear suppliers, through Amazon, the Takezawa Online Shop, and other E-Commerce channels, and through Toray shops.

The Sunflowers, Café Terrace at Night, and Almond Blossom designs commemorate the 170th birthday next year of the post-impressionist artist. The popular Masterpieces series leverages the precision of Toray microfiber technology to faithfully reproduce celebrated paintings for enjoyment of their artistry. Toray launched the series in 2010 with Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Claude Monet’s Water Lilies, and other designs. It added Pierre-Auguste Renoir designs in 2018.


Toraysee™ cloths employ microfibers with diameters of just two microns, or around 1/1,600th the diameter of a human hair. Gaps between the fibers are invisible to the naked eye and draw even microscopic dirt into them. They make life better by deftly removing sebum from eyewear lenses and smartphone and other touch panels without scratching them. They also serve in medical and manufacturing applications.
