“Hake” are brushes formed by separate pieces of wood. After drilling small holes in one piece of wood, they attach the strands of hair by hand because it is the only way that they can ensure they are tight enough. After this they bond the wood with the main piece. After this the hairs are cut to symmetry.
Uno Hake brushes started in 1917. Currently Ms. Chieko Uno works with her daughter Michiyo to continue their family craft. These brushes have been modernised to have an array of modern uses. For home use, to clean your face, body, clothes, shoes, etc.
