Nanbuhouki is made in Kunohe, Japan.

WHAT IS NANBUHOUKI?

Nanbuhouki is the name of the broom we craft in Kunohe, Japan. The broom has a special property - “wavy tips”. This unique quality was discovered by accident when broomcorn was grown in the cold climate of the Kunohe region. Initially, the wavy quality of the broomcorn was disregarded as inferior due to its appearance, but soon it was discovered that the wavy tips were exceptionally good at sweeping up dust. Now, the wavy tips are what distinguishes Nanbuhouki from other common brooms.

UNIQUE SHAPE

The wavy tips of broomcorn are the most significant property of Nanbuhouki. The tips catch any tiny piece of dust or hair deep within a rug or carpet. Moreover, the broom is perfect for cleaning delicate clothing, such as a cashmere sweater, since the tips are delicate and soft.

ONE YEAR

It takes one entire year to make a Nanbuhouki. We start by planting and cultivating broomcorn plants in the spring. Taking care of the plants takes until late summer or early autumn. Finally, we assemble the brooms in the winter. From planting to weaving, every step in the process of creating our brooms is done by hand.
