Shuro Palm Fibre
Made in Japan
Made from the precious fibers of Japanese Shuro (windmill palm), grown specifically in Wakayama prefecture, and only from natural materials harvested using traditional methods, the AZMAYA Sumikko Brush is produced with minimal impact to the windmill palm trees and without the use of chemicals. The skilled craftsmen select the fibers of Shuro one by one, then rolling them up with brass wire in order to maintain a uniform thickness and texture.
The resulting palm fibre bundle is soft to touch and removes dirt more gently than similar fibre brushes.
Ideal for scrubbing small teapots, delicate cups or glassware, the Sumikko Brush is also useful for cleaning the tiny spaces of the keyboard.

Making the best use of skilled Japanese craftsmanship, Azmaya collaborates with artisans, designers, and small local manufactures to revive an old Japanese aesthetic sense.
From beautifully crafted tableware and functionally calculated kitchenware, their specialized housewares are made with a consistent commitment to using traditional techniques and only the highest quality materials found in Japan.
While respecting the traditions of Japanese craftwork, Azmaya creates something new by modifying the design to match tested Japanese “tools” with the present age. The collection features minimalist design reflecting the high level of skill and superior techniques of the artisans today.
Easy to use, made to last. Our new standard in everyday life.
