This is a shop for "Aikushi," a completely new type of comb that brings together the wisdom and skills of craftsmen based in Aizu. The tip of the comb and the frame itself have been rounded to achieve a smooth combing feeling.
The product is finished with a traditional lacquer coating called 'Urushi-Nuri' and delivered in a box made of the highest quality Aizu paulownia wood and an Aizu cotton pouch.

Aizu's manufacturing companies have come together to create this product.
About us, Aid_U

The team includes Sunbright (Aizuwakamatsu City), the team's representative and a precision parts cutter, Yu-Aizu.

The trigger was to give back.
SUNBRIGHT, the representative of Aid_U, was forced to evacuate from Okuma Town due to the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant of the Tokyo Electric Power Company. After the accident, we relocated our factory to Aizuwakamatsu City, which welcomed us with a lot of support. We have been manufacturing precision instruments such as semiconductor manufacturing equipment parts and camera parts in Aizuwakamatsu. Our desire to return the favor to Aizu, which has accepted us and allowed us to grow, somehow turned into a wish to create value by bringing together Aizu's advanced manufacturing technologies. The passion of the companies that shared our vision took the form of a team.
Sunbright, our representative, is celebrating its 10th year since relocating in 2011, and more than 50 of its 67 employees are from Aizu. In addition, among the participating companies, many artisans are recruiting apprentices from inside and outside of the prefecture, and are working diligently to train their successors. I am filled with joy and gratitude to have many people come together here in Aizu, and that we can grow together and develop products like this.
As the first step of Aid_U, we have put our thoughts of Aizu into every detail of Aikushi. We hope you will take a look at our products.
