The pattern on the handle has been changed to flower petals.
Raden is a style and technique in Japanese lacquerware and woodwork using inlays of shell and ivory to decorate pieces that usually have a wood base, whether lacquered or not, though bases of metal or other materials may be used. The shells used include mother-of-pearl, abalone and other types.
The Russian-made Kolinsky hair feature long, resilient bristles, and are highly valued as luxury items. The hair quality is thinner and longer and more delicate than a normal weasel's hair, and has a softly pleasant, consistent texture. Normally, Kolinsky brushes are used to make eyeshadow and concealer brushes. But in this instance, Koyudo used the longest, most expensive and high-quality kolinsky hair to create this rare and unique facial brush with Japanese Traditional Craft "Raden". It comes in a HIROSHIMA recycled paper box.
