Historic and cultural reasons explain why these special Freudenberg nonwovens, mostly fabrics strengthened with waterjet treatments, are produced in Japan. The use of external healing methods is popular and well-recognized in that country.
For instance, it is normal for someone with a headache to initially apply a cooling plaster to the forehead. The Japanese don’t like pills and prefer powders, patches and alternative healing methods. Patches administer medicine to children suffering from asthma, while inhalers and sprays are the norm in Germany. Medicine in powdered form from healing plants, such as ginger and cinnamon, are very popular in Japan.
