KOZO Tawashi Brush Sumikko
[Takada kozo shoten]
Tawashi is a traditional Japanese brush made by tying up the fibers of hemp palm with wires. Takada kozo shoten has been making Tawashi in Wakayama since 1948. Each of their Tawashi is neatly made by hand. They are holding a Japanese palm tree reforestation project in Wakayama.
Nowadays most of Tawashi brush is made of hard palm. Takada kozo shoten use "hemp palm", which is a traditional material used for Tawashi. The advantage of hemp palm is its softness, durability, and heat resistance. The soft hemp palm fibers can wash without damaging the ingredients and tools. After usage, you can disinfect the Tawashi by hot water.
