We've had a lot of questions about Chikuhodo's powder brushes. We've left it with Alicia Archer (aka Kinkysweat) to use her vast knowledge and passion for fude brushes to help you choose the one* that is (*or ones that are!) right for you. 

Alicia talks through the new Kazan Homare Powder Brush, as well as the MK-UM (Plum design), MK-2 (Sakura design), FO-1 (Silver Fox), MK-KO (Carp design), and the classics, Z-1 and Z-9

“This brush is just magnificent in its construction, its design.. you have the shiny black ferrule, with the wood handle and the special kazan bristles.”

“The bristles are dancing on my skin… It’s soft, but has that pickup as well.”

“Natural hair brushes that are made in Japan are vastly different from brushes that are made elsewhere. The primary difference is the fact that these fibers are left intact, they’re not cut, to create the shape of the brush.

In fact, highly skilled artisans in Kumano, Japan – which is where is which these brush makers primarily reside – they hand-bundle all the bristles by themselves, they shape them with their hands, to dictate the brushes' tasks. They don’t rely on cutting, they don’t rely on machinery to make these brushes... When you realize and understand the craftsmanship that goes into creating these brushes, then everything starts to make sense.”
