      Hairtypes used in this set :

      PRADO series made of TAME-hair:

      It is one of the most valued synthetic fibers because of its similarity to sable hair.
      It not only imitates its color, but it also imitates its spring and absorption of liquids.
      Thanks to the perfect combination of three different diameters and three lengths in the fibers the brushstroke’s result is the same as one made of natural hair.

      ULTIMO series made of TENDO-hair :

      An almost perfect imitation of squirrel has been achieved with this artificial hair. Thanks to the special fiber in this Ultimo series, extraordinary softness and a capacity to retain liquids is achieved which is virtually the same as that found in the natural squirrel hair. The Ultimo series could become a synthetic hair benchmark to gradually replace natural hair in the future.
