When did these crafts start to craft?：200 years ago / 1800AD / Edo period in Japan
Kumano brush is a traditional craft made in Hiroshima Prefecture. The history of the Kumano brush dates back to the late Edo period (1800s). Full-scale production started in the year 1835, but production temporarily ceased during World War II. After the war, when calligraphy education was discontinued, the company began producing not only calligraphy brushes but also painting brushes and cosmetic brushes. Later, calligraphy education in schools was restored, resulting in a greater demand for Kumano brushes than before.
Since its establishment in 1953 as a hardware manufacturer, the company has been working with Kumano brushes for many years and has inherited the importance of craftsmanship and the reliability of products that can be used continuously. As the brush is used to express their creativity, he is focusing on making the brush that is easy for users to express their feeling.
"0.05mm ultra-fine bristles, the crystallization of our original technology"
We are exploring how we can bring traditional technology to today's consumers. We select materials and manufacture all types of cosmetic brushes according to various beauty concerns and wishes, such as how it feels when applied to the skin, how easy it is to care for, and how it responds to sensitive skin. Because they are used every day, we carefully and wholeheartedly make each brush one by one, valuing "comfort" that resonates with the skin and the heart.
