Meet the Artisan



Japanese firm Takada has been creating household goods since 1948. Their speciality is Shuro Tawashi, the traditional Japanese brushes and brooms made from the bark of the windmill palm tree. After a period of overharvesting by large corporations, Takada has successfully reintroduced these trees, which grow naturally in the Kishu area (Wakayama prefecture) of Japan.

With all natural raw materials, Takada brushes, brooms and dustpans are handmade by talented craftsmen using techniques from times gone by. These craftsmen believe that household products should be a source of joy and of pleasure to the user while care is taken to protect – and nurture – the environment.
