Yamamoto Japanese Broom


Long-handled SHURO Tawashi broom – traditional Japanese scrub brushes made from the bark of windmill palm trees growing naturally in the Kishu area (Wakayama prefecture) of Japan, made by Yamamoto Katsunosuke Shoten. Shuro brushes are handmade using the bark of the windmill palm tree called Shuro, a natural material familiar to Japanese culture since ancient times. Shuro’s flexible and soft texture is ideal when utilized for scrub brushes and brooms.

Handcrafted with windmill palm fibers & sturdy hinoki wood using age old techniques. This traditional Japanese broom will keep your floors gleaming & last for up to 20 years.
