Takada Kozo has been manufacturing household goods exclusively focused on the everyday life since 1948. “SHURO Tawashi,” traditional Japanese scrub brushes made from the bark of windmill palm trees growing naturally in the Kishu area (Wakayama prefecture) of Japan, have been successfully reintroduced by Takada.
The tawashi brushes offered by ITSUMO are handmade using the bark of the windmill palm tree called Shuro, a natural material familiar to Japanese culture since ancient times. Shuro’s flexible and soft texture is ideal when utilized for scrub brushes and brooms. Takada brushes are of the highest quality. So soft you can use it for massaging or scrubbing the body when bathing. To this day, most of the manufacturing processes are carefully achieved by the hands of skilled craftsmen. Takada craftsmen believe that household products in everyday life should be friendly to users, as well as the environment. Conveying the superior quality of the windmill palm industry and the associated techniques of fine craftsmanship to the next generation is the prime focus of Takada’s business.
