Sasara is a type of tawashi with the fibres in bundled form. To make a sasara the fibres from the bark close to the tree are used. Sasara differs from the usual tawashi in that it can be used for heavy-duty washing that is similar to polishing. When the tips are worn, the length of the fibres can be adjusted by removing the wire that holds them in place.
