2024 is the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese Zodiac, known as 'tatsudoshi' in Japanese, symbolizing power and energy.

To celebrate the Year of the Dragon, Koyudo is releasing a limited-edition kabuki powder brush, adorned with intricate makie design and a luxurious blend of natural bristles. Makie is a time-honored Japanese design technique for lacquerware, exuding luxury and elegance.

In 2024, the dragon aligns with the wood element, which also forms the distinctive cubic wooden base of this brush's handle. This year heralds new beginnings, hard work, and a powerful trajectory towards growth and prosperity. As wood is also considered the mother of the fire element, it sparks passion, creativity, and innovation.

The handle is finished in a glossy black with minute glitter particles. The dragon motif is beautifully rendered in gold and red makie. The kanji symbol 辰 (tatsu, meaning dragon) shines in gold makie, and accompanying text (Year of the Dragon, Yoshiki signature) is elegantly printed in dark gray.

Each brush is presented in a paulownia box.
