Traditional Japanese scrub brushes, called "SHURO-TAWASHI," which are made of the bark of the windmill palm tree growing naturally in the KISHU area (Wakayama Prefecture) of Japan.  

TAKADA's brushes are the highest in quality. The SHURO fibers are so soft that you can even use it for massaging the body when bathing.

Two kinds of TAWASHI

There are two kinds of TAWASHI. One is "Japanese SHURO TAWASHI" made of the bark of the domestic windmill palm tree in Kishu, Japan, and the other is simply called "SHURO TAWASHI" made of imported bark of the windmill palm tree.

No chemicals such as pesticides and disinfectants are used after harvest for the bark of the windmill palm tree of KISHU. It is an organic farming method. 
The domestic bark of windmill palm trees is delivered to their workshop soon after it is gathered, so the products are delivered fresh to the customers. Fresh bark has fine luster and uniform fibers.
