Handmade Brushes

The beginning of the brush in Japan was in the middle of the 19th century, and was made in the model of a French-made brush such as clothes brushes and brushes used in washing horses and the westernization of lifestyles increased its demand. In addition, the Tokugawa shogunate and the SPDC clan introducing the military administration style was another factor for its prosperity.

Compared to being planted for each hole in the planting machine, hand-flocked brushes are planted in succession by stainless steel wire, called draw lines, and the durability of the bristles are very high.
