Hakuhodo Co., Ltd.
The Hakuhodo head office is located about 20 kilometers east of the city of Hiroshima. Hakuhodo was founded in 1974 in the town of Kumano and for around 200 years Kumano has had a long history in the production of brushes. At their main factory in Hiroshima they manufacture approximately 500,000 brushes a month. Their efficient production process which is based on the traditional techniques of truly skilled craftsmen continues to support this. We do not rely on machine manufacturing. In order to maintain the high quality of production, all their brushes are hand-crafted. They have obtained a patent for a method of arranging a brush head which enables us to achieve mass production of quality brushes. This ongoing production policy has enabled us to achieve the honour of receiving the first Prime Minister’s prize of Monodzukuri Japan Grand Award.
At Hakuhodo they supply their own brand brushes. However, they can also produce labeling for private companies and their OEM customers range from leading domestic and international cosmetic companies to makeup artists own brands.See more
