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.
