 Product History

When did these crafts start to craft?:200 years ago / 1800AD / Edo period in Japan

The date when the production of hemp-palm brooms began is not clearly known, but it is believed to have been in use since before the Edo period (1603-1868), much older than the broomcorn (Poaceae/annual grass), which appeared in the late Edo period (1800s). Although not much historical data remains on the broom as a household item, it can be seen depicted as a common broom in paintings from the Edo period. Palm brooms spread mainly in Kyoto, and it is said that hemp-palm broom making in the Nogamitani area of Wakayama Prefecture (from the area around present-day Kimino Town, Wakayama Prefecture, to the Arita River basin) was practiced in the late Edo period.

In the Showa period (1926-1989) and the postwar period (1945-1989), the Nogamitani area in Wakayama was the largest producer of hemp palms in Japan, and this had a great deal to do with the fact that the hemp palm industry (ropes, brushes, mats, brooms, etc.) flourished in the communities around Douki, where the town office is located. The hemp-palm broom industry also flourished, with as many as 20 or 30 individual stores specializing in this industry.

Most hemp-palm broom making was a small-scale cottage industry, with each household producing both inexpensive mass-produced products and high-quality brooms, which were distributed mainly to western Japan by local wholesalers and peddlers.

In a very small area, many craftsmen competed with each other, some using the division of labor to mass-produce inexpensive hemp-palm brooms, while others specialized in custom-made, high-quality brooms. The shape and design of the hemp-palm broom was created in the pursuit of a broom that was easier to sweep, stronger, and more pleasing to the eye.
