Once a standard item in traditional Japanese kitchens, tawashi brushes can be used for cleaning vegetables as well as delicate glass, tableware or shirt collars.

Using fibers from palms harvested in Aridagawa Town, Wakayama Prefecture, the brushes are handmade by specialist craftsmen, who bound palm tightly with wire in a cylindrical shape that fits well in the hand.
