Traditional craftsmanship filled with delicacy and ease of use
One of the few shops in Japan specializing in Japanese and Western brushes. They originated as exclusive brush makers for the Shogun family and made brushes for applying ink when making woodblock prints, painting hanging scrolls, and so on. The skills that have continued to develop for ages and demanded by professional craftsmen are still alive and well. To this day, only natural materials such as pig and horse bristles are used along with the traditional craftsmanship where the bristles are placed in each hole by hand so that the tips of the brushes do not lose shape. Among their more popular items are their clothes brushes, which are known to maintain usability for a long time. The clothes brushes made with delicate, firm, and high-quality pig bristles take good care of fabric by removing lint and dust while keeping static away. Established in 1718.
