ABOUT Shuro Palm Craft
Eco-friendly crafts with a tropical flair
Products made from the palm-like plant known as "Shuro" are a traditional craft of Kainan City in Wakayama Prefecture, Japan. This plant, which gives a tropical ambiance, was once naturally grown and cultivated in the mountainous regions formerly known as Nogamidani. The dark brown fibers that envelop the trunk of this plant are robust, resistant to decay, and possess notable elasticity and durability. These characteristics have led to the creation of various daily goods, including ropes, nets, sheaves, brushes, trivets and more.View more SHURO PALM CRAFT
