Description

What is Saikoho Yomo?
It is the highest-quality part among goat hair with extra smooth. Picked up only high quality and very soft hair from Sokoho.
Saikoho hair which has a long translucent portion towards the tip, and is amber in color, is considered to be of particularly high quality, and it is a selection of the finest goats' hair, of the highest quality.
The highest-quality hair for brushes, known as "Koyomo", is hair that has been taken from goats living in the Yangtze region of China, in the 1970s or before, and is precious due to its rarity. Brushes using "Koyomo" confirmed as being from this period, are coated in cuticles up to the hair tip, and have delicate tips, which means that they feel smooth on the skin and have no friction. The brushes also last a long time, becoming more adapted the more they are used, and as make-up brushes they are unparalleled.
This brush is completed using the traditional Aizu lacquering method of "Tamamushi-nuri". "Tamamushi-nuri" is one of the methods of traditional Aizu lacquering, and after the Second World War it was widely exported to Europe. After applying a "Honkataji" base as with normal lacquering, silver powder is scattered over the whole surface, then "Tamamushi-urushi", colored red, is painted. The glossiness is adjusted, and the composition altered, in order to make the appearance more glass-like, which allows the pure silver to shine through and raise the base luster. The contrast between the pale white color of the "Koyomo", and the glossy, rich, deep, red color of the stem, is extremely beautiful.
It comes with a presentation box.
*Because this product is made with natural wood, wood grain may be visible on the handle. Thin lines may also be visible; these are a result of the product being manufactured with lacquer. Such variations may be expected with natural materials.

Ideal for blush, highlighting and contouring the hollows of the cheeks and cheekbones as well.

Description in Japanese

古羊毛 雪月花 月シリーズ 会津塗はなぬり チークブラシ

細光峰羊毛(さいこうほうようもう) とは:仔山羊の首から胸まわりの摩耗の少ない毛で、毛先の透明な部分が長く飴色になっている物は特に上質とされ、良い毛だけを選りすぐった最高級の山羊毛です。会津塗の伝統技法の「玉虫塗り」。会津塗り:会津塗の伝統技法のひとつで、戦後はヨーロッパへの輸出が盛んでした。漆器本来の本堅地下地をほどこした後に、全面に銀粉を蒔き、紅の色をつけた玉虫漆にて塗り上げます。艶を調整し、より硝子質に見えるよう調合することで、下から輝く純銀が底艶を上げます。最高級の筆毛「古羊毛」とは、中国の楊子江に棲息する山羊の、特に1980年代以前に採取された希少価値の高い山羊の毛です。この年代を特定した「古羊毛」の筆は、毛先までキューティクルで覆われており、毛先がとても繊細なため、肌あたりがとても滑らかで柔らかく摩擦がありません。筆としての寿命も長く、使い込むほどに馴染んでいき、類を見ないほどの優れた化粧筆です。淡い白色の古羊毛と、軸の艶やかな潤いある奥深い紅色のコントラストが、非常に綺麗です。化粧箱付き。
