With the exclusive Edoya clothes brush, you’ll always have a touch of class! Enter our contest for a chance to win your own clothes brush, hand-crafted by the artisans who once supplied the Shogun family.
In 18th-century Japan, brushes were widely used to apply paper to shoji and lacquer to interiors. It was at this period, in 1718, that the Tokyo artisans Edoya began crafting brushes as the official brush makers of the Shogun family.
Today, this Tokyo workshop still uses time-honored methods and natural materials to create luxury brushes in the finest Japanese tradition.
Edoya’s luxury clothes brush features a handle crafted from Japanese cherry birch, while the brush itself is made from dense pig bristles, inserted by hand, one hair at a time. To ensure soft but effective brushing, the bristles are carefully inserted on two separate levels.
The result of this intricate work is an extremely versatile brush. You can use it to brush down anything from cashmere and silk clothing to wool sweaters, suits and kimonos.
