Who knew there existed so many brushes for so many different purposes? Whether you’re painting, cleaning, grooming or polishing, at Kanaya Brush you’ll find a vast selection of artisanal brushes – from toothbrushes and soft makeup brushes to kitchen scrubbers and even bristles for your pets – mostly made from a diverse range of animal hair including mountain goat and squirrel.
You can also find specific brushes for different clothing and fabrics, including leather, as well as an endless selection of paintbrushes if you’re more artistically inclined. It’s hard to get a handle on such a broad-brush approach to bristly implements, but you can start with one of the face or body brushes for some self-pampering exfoliation. Otherwise, pick up a traditional Japanese tawashi kitchen scrubber, which makes for a practical souvenir.
