About the brand

Botanical Brushes from WAKAYAMA, Japan

TAKADA's artisans have been handcrafting TAWASHI with uniform texture one at a time, using only the finest, carefully-selected materials for some seventy years.

About the material and process

The bark of the windmill palm tree, or SHURO, has been one of the familiar materials to the people of Japan since old times, and its flexible and soft texture has been utilized for brooms and scrub brushes, called "TAWASHI" in Japanese. In the past, the local industry using the domestic windmill palm is almost discontinued. However, TAKADA has been restoring traditional Japanese scrub brushes made of the bark of the windmill palm tree growing naturally in Japan's KISHU area (Wakayama Prefecture) while sustaining the major part of their business of producing and selling the mainstream products utilizing imported SHURO fibers. The fresh bark of SHURO has fine luster and uniform fibers.  We use these finest materials for selected products such as body brushes.
Despite appearances, our brushes are astonishingly soft, making them suitable for bathing and scrubbing fruits and vegetables, imparting a gentle, pleasing, and invigorating sensation to your skin.  But don't take our word for it — pick one up and experience for yourself the quality that lends something a bit extraordinary every day.

Each item is a unique display of craftsmanship.
