Nakamura Koji

Nakamura Koji is an artisanal broom maker. He learned the vernacular method of hemp-palm (shuro) broom making from his grandfather. That was the life in the mountain area in southern Japan where he grew up and lives, and hunts wild animals as a seasonal profession.

To make very best of the kind, Nakamura carefully selects shuro fibre so that his brooms be durable and last longer, as well as paying a detailed attention to make them both functional and beautiful.
