Tawashi are traditional Japanese scrubbing brushes made from the fibers of the windmill palm. For centuries, these kinds of brushes have been used in Japan for cleaning pots and dishes. With over seventy years of experience, specialized artisans have honed their skills in handcrafting tawashi scrubs, one by one. They have learned to procure materials harvested from trees cultivated in the Wakayama Prefecture, which yield bristles that are much softer than palm fibers grown in other regions of the world.
Despite their stiff appearances, these bristles that are unique to Japan, are surprisingly gentle, making them perfect for cleaning fruits and vegetables, as well as suitable for bathing. When used as a body cleansing brush, whether dry or wet, tawashi brushes leave a pleasant, reinvigorating sensation on the skin. But don't take our word for it—pick one up and experience firsthand the ability of Takada brushes to turn small everyday moments into something extraordinary.
