Why Japanese Makeup Brushes?
Handmade by Artisans
From selecting the finest bristles and hand-bundling them into shape, assembling the brushes, and applying decorative elements.
Centuries of History
Japanese makeup brushes evolved from the traditional craft of calligraphy-brush making, which dates back hundreds of years.
Uncut Bristle Tips
Rather than being cut by machines into shape, Japanese Fude bundled in molds to take advantage of natural fine tips.
The finest natural bristles, innovative synthetic fibers, wooden handles, and traditional finishing techniques like lacquerware.
Uncut bristle tips are known to make a difference in product pick-up, softness on skin, and a smooth, even application.
