I have been in the hunt for a gigantic mama brush roll since I started my brush addiction, the only big one I ever found was the large Inglot but when filled with brushes it bursts open…
Today I finally own my dream brush roll thanks to the gorgeous design and sewing skills of my sweet friend Sarah, she did such a freaking fantastic job!!!
When I told her I wanted a brush roll THAT long, she wasn’t convinced at all, she said it would be too big and unpractical, she gave me the look and said I would even need a dedicated backpack to carry it!!! Yeaaaaah, don’t care, I still want a huge mama brush roll! She was staying with me for the weekend and I managed to persuade her, well, eventually, she thought I was joking!!!
After a few estimates and measurements she came up with this brushroll, with a typical Japanese print that I love, seigaiha (wave), these waves are considered a symbol of peace, good luck and good fortune in Japan.
You unfold once…
Then BOUM !!!!
24 compartments in a brushroll THAT long… (for reference, my vanity is 1,20 meters wide)
I can store my brushes on the left, and the brushes I use on others on the right, they never touch when folded!
It’s bulky when full….
but still flexible so it fits easily in the luggage, although she still wanted me to have a matching back pack … that she also made for me!!!
And she made this sketch … yeah, it’s pretty much me, minus the skirt, I have become much more selective with my shopping in Japan but I still manage to loose control…
Thank you Sarah!!! I am so thrilled to travel with it!
So… what do you think? Is it really that big?? I think it’s just the perfect size!!!
