Upcoming Price Change

Dear Valued Patron,

We would like to inform you that Hakuhodo is planning to increase the price of certain items due to the recent increase in the prices of the raw materials. Since Hakuhodo currently has some raw materials in stock for production, the price increases will not begin until February 1, 2019. Most of our products will be affected by a price increase ranging from 10% to 40%. Items containing squirrel hair and long horse hair be the most significantly impacted.

Hakuhodo USA has done its best to stock as many brushes as possible to make them available for you to purchase before the price increase, but quantity is still limited. The new pricing will affect the following models of brushes: those containing squirrel hair, mixed bristle brushes with squirrel hair, and long horse hair, as well as all brushes in the S100, S100Bk and Kokutan series.

The following items will remain unchanged in price:

  •  Goat hair brushes with exceptions: brushes that are goat hair mixed with squirrel hair or long horse hair, and/or in the S100, S100Bk, and Kokutan series will increase in price 
    • E.g.  J5523BkSL, B142BkSl, etc.
  • Short Horse hair Eye brushes with exceptions: brushes that are mixed with squirrel hair and/or in the S100, S100Bk, and Kokutan series
    • E.g. B533BkSL, B5507BkSL, etc.
  •  Synthetic hair brushes with exceptions: brushes that are mixed with squirrel hair or long horse hair, and/or in the S100, S100Bk, and Kokutan series
  • Water Badger bristle brushes.

 

Please note: when an item runs out, the current price will become invalid and Hakuhodo USA will not be able accept any further orders of the out-of-stock item. Since raw material procurement itself is difficult, the dates on which we will resume sales of out-of-stock items are to be determined.  

Most of our currently sold-out items will be back in stock early February, though we currently do not have an estimate for when brushes made of Canadian squirrel hair will be back in stock. When available, the affected brushes will retail at their new price. 

Hakuhodo has tried to prevent a price increase for many years because we strive to provide the best quality products at a competitive price. However, the increase in the price of raw materials has become too much for the company, thus we have no choice but to implement this upcoming price increase.

We appreciate your understanding and your continued patronage.

Yours Sincerely,
