Nakamura Koji

Nakamura Koji is an artisanal broom maker. He learned the vernacular method of palm (shuro) broom making from his grandfather. That was the life in the mountain area in southen 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.
