Kanebo was founded in 1887 as a company focused on the textile industry, cotton and silk. It was the first to use these two materials together. In 1937, the brand began to deal with cosmetics and in a short time it became No. 1 in cosmetics sales in Japan. In the 80's Kanebo expanded to Europe with a lot of success. In 1989, the brand launched its first line of Sensai. This is a line characteristic of the use of koishimaru silk fibers.
