HOUKODOU brushes are beautiful gems created one at a time by artisans who seek a world of culture and art and who, in so doing, have inherited the historical tradition of brush making. HOUKODOU artisans, highly skilled in the traditional craftsmanship of Kumano brushes, an art resulting of over 110 years of history, produce the kind of brushes that were loved by famous calligraphers and painters like Shiko Munakata. Founded in 1900, HOUKODOU is a long-established manufacturer that continues to produce authentic brushes in which the bristles are not cut, offering a gentle and light touch to even the most delicate skin.
