vegan friendly products – Kuretake

 

Manufacturer: Kuretake

Update May 2018
Kuretake products can NOT be considered vegan-friendly.
As at first Kuretake representatives assured us, that their products are cruelty free, they later chose to inform us, that, due to the langauge-barrier, they are not able to understand what cruelty-free means or what animal-testing is. Despite claiming to have a look into this matter, no more awnsers were recieved from Kuretake.

Vegan friendly products:

-Kuretake Fude Pens, except the Fountain pen Shikatsuno series, the Fountain Brush pens have a brush tip made of animal hair

-ZIG Cartoonist Ink, except the Sumi Ink

-ZIG Kurecolor

ZIG Clean Color Real Brush

-ZIG Waterbrush H20

-Acrylista

-Gansai Tambi including the Pearlescent and Starry Colours

 

I am happy to finally share this information with you. The list is still incomplete, there will be additions over time.
