Boot Black

As written  in the company portrait, The Columbus Co. Ltd. was founded in 1919 as Matsudo Factory – the building still bears this name today.


The series Boot Black 1919 (Black Line, because in Japan there is also still the BB Silver Line) is the first line of Columbus, in which the 100 years of experience and a lot of accumulated know-how as well as the joy of experimenting with new raw materials such as Argan oil are reflected.
SNEAKER CARE and La Lumière are two side lines of the Boot Black main line:
One line includes products that are especially aimed at sneakers, but are also very suitable for all leather shoes.
Very soon in 2020 the first products of the new SNEAKER LINE by Boot Black will be available.
La Lumière, not available outside Japan, with a beguiling scent of citrus and neroli, has been specially designed for women.
La Lumière’s cream is derived directly from Artist Palette No 1 and differs from it in its fresh, summery fragrances – in terms of ingredients, both are more or less the same.

In Japan, the complete and very extensive skin care range is also available under the name Columbus.

Boot Black and Columbus, on the other hand, are absolutely authentic, and the company will celebrate its centenary in 2019.
Customers can then expect a real firework display of products!
