The soft natural fibers of the windmill palm ensure that these brushes have the perfect combination of pliancy and firmness for removing grease and food particles, even from your best glasses and dishware, without scratching. They're also ideal for cleaning fruits and vegetables, gently lifting away dirt without damaging the outer layer, so you never have to sacrifice nutrition or flavor in the name of cleanliness. Trusted by professional chefs and home cooks alike for helping preserve the integrity of ingredients, these kitchen brushes' high quality and versatility make them an essential tool for any kitchen.

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.
