[Regarding the Hemp Palm Made in Kishu]

A long time ago, hemp palm has been an important product in Kishu (Wakayama Prefecture). Many people collected hemp palm, carried them on their back, and sold them to others, and hemp palm was so cherished that there existed bandits who used to target the sales obtained by those people while they were heading back home.

Today, however, hemp palm made in Kishu is no more collected. Demands for Kishu-made hemp palm has decreased in recent times, as low price substitutes are now imported from abroad, and there are few palm mountains that are maintained. Moreover, there are only a few craftsmen who collect hemp palm. Thus, Kishu-made hemp palm is now considered extremely rare.

Takada Kozo Shoten’s Scrubbing Brush carefully utilizes only 15% of the rare hemp palm skin, as to produce an ultimate touch. Please experience the high-quality, artistic touch created by scrubbing brush craftsmen.
