Shoes and General Cleaning Tawashi

€17,00 EUR

  • Bright colours in two sizes
  • Clean your sneakers with natural fibres
  • Durable and comfortable handle made in Japan
  • The smooth curve of the handle fits well in the hand with different sizes for different hands
  • The scrubbing brush is tightly wound with high-quality palm fibres to scrub away even the most stubborn dirt.
  • Jump can be used not only for washing shoes, but also in kitchens, laundry, outdoor use, etc. depending on your ideas

JUMP started sales about 50 years ago as a scrubbing brush with a handle that is convenient for washing shoes and general cleaning.

The product design is by Atsumi Kikuchi, who won the Japan Package Design Award 2017 Gold Award for the Kamenoko sponge package.

The handle, which is the symbol of the jump, has a shape that fits comfortably in the hand while being conscious of the flowing curve from the scourer to the tip of the handle. This pattern part is produced in Japan for fine finishing.

The scrubber part is manufactured and joined to the handle in Sri Lanka, which has high production technology for scrubbing brushes, and all final inspections are performed at our own factory in Japan.

The packaging also uses paper instead of plastic, minimising the amount of materials used and considering the environment.

The five-color lineup makes it easy to distinguish between different colours for different owners in your family or for different uses.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
