Two lengths of shuro broom
£55.00 – £85.00
Long seven bundle or mid-length five bundle dark bamboo handled copper bound shuro (an interwoven fibrous sheath harvested from the trunk of hemp palms) floor brooms particularly recommended for fine wooden (or tatami) floors as the fibres contain natural oils thought to be especially beneficial to these surfaces. Bound and finished in Wakayama prefecture by the craftsmen of Yamamoto Katsunosuke shoten - one of a handful of remaining ‘Edo’ broom makers still active in Japan - from Chinese grown, cut, and bundled shuro. The longer stands at approximately 120cm, the shorter about 75cm.
