Koyudo Saibikoho Fuji-Sakura Raden Powder Brush (Red)
This limited-edition brush is crafted by master brush maker, Fujimori Uematsu, in collaboration with the traditional techniques of Toyama Prefecture. Bristles are the softest, highest grade goat hair – saibikoho – which is revered for its smooth texture and natural luster, and its ability to leave the skin with an even, natural glow.
To evoke a feeling of traditional Japan, the handle is embellished with Mount Fuji (a symbol of Japan and designated world heritage site) and sakura (cherry blossoms, Japan's national flower) using the raden decorative technique.
Raden is a traditional mother-of-pearl inlay technique used in Toyama Prefecture. The iridescent, rainbow-colored nacreous layer inside the shell is embedded into a carved surface of lacquer or wood.
Please note that it takes about a week to ship, due to the extra production time required. This brush is also available with a black handle.
