Takada Tawashi

Designer Takada Tawashi Home Decor CollectionDesigner Takada Tawashi Home Decor Collection

Made from the windmill palm tree native to the Kishu region of Wakayama Prefecture in Japan since the Edo period, Takada Tawashi brushes have been produced by manufacturer Takeda Kozo Shoten as a gentler and softer alternative to traditional tawashi scrubbing brushes since 1948. Precious bark is cultivated from the tall evergreen tree that is rot and water resistant with rich elasticity. When mass production led to cheap alternatives for tawashi scrubbing brushes, the material no longer served of use.

It was third-generation sales manager, Daisuke Takada who saw the need to revitalize the use of windmill palm as a responsibility of the people of Kishu. With the help of a craftsman who was knowledgeable of the ancestral methods of processing and molding the domestically sourced bark into brush tools, Takeda Kozo Shoten has expanded its line of product offerings to feature functional and artfully designed brooms and body brushes.
