Koyudo Ouchi Lacquer Powder Brush (Limited edition)
This limited-edition powder brush is a collaboration between Koyudo and Ouchi lacquerware artisans from Yamaguchi prefecture. It's a splendid brush imbued with the rich history and culture of Japan.
Ouchi lacquerware ('Ouchi-nuri', in Japanese) dates back to the Muromachi period (1336-1573), emerging under the powerful Ouchi clan. The clan sought to emulate the culture of Kyoto and invited lacquer craftsmen from Kyoto to produce lacquerware in Yamaguchi. Ouchi lacquerware is valued for its durability as well as its aesthetic grace.
Vivid vermilion is a characteristic color of Ouchi lacquerware. For this brush, the vermillion is embellished with snowflakes of gold powder and completed with a golden ferrule. Bristles are made with high-quality sokoho goat hair arranged into a voluminous, fluffy round shape that allows powder to be evenly across your skin.
