Susudake Chashaku (Takayama, Ikoma, Nara Japan):

Susudake is bamboo that is taken from old, straw-thatched house ceilings where it has changed to an auburn colour by absorbing smoke from the irori (sunken-hearth) for decades, sometimes even centuries. Its natural golden-brown colour makes it a very admirable and desired item.

About whisk maker Kizou Nakata

 

 

 

Nakata Kizo, whisk maker and bamboo craftsman


Kizo Nakata was born in 1940 in Takayama, Ikoma, Nara Prefecture.

Though he was the son of a rice farmer, at the age of 14, he was sent to acquire skillful hands by learning to make whisks as an apprentice. After 6 years of study, he continued to learn various techniques before becoming independent at the age of 25.

In 1975, he founded the Kizo Nakata company, which presently produces about half of Japan’s whisks.
