Kamenoko Tawashi was founded in 1907 by Nishio Tadashi Saemon. He had the idea of creating tools that would improve the everyday life while he witnessed his mother and his wife working. He now has a large collection of brushes for household and body.
When seeing the floating brush in the bucket, the founder's son said it looked like a turtle shell. He would therefore call it "Kamenoko tawashi", litteraly the turtle brush.
In 2013, this brush gets the Long Life Design Award as a major product hand made since 1907. Quality, durability, best size for a woman hand.
