Kubotago Kumanofude Calligraphy Brush: Key to Unlimited Creativity and Expressiveness

Although Kumanofude brush is internationally renowned as high-end makeup brush used by charismatic fashion brands, its origin is its use as calligraphy brush and designated as Japanese Traditional Craft by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry since 1975, praised for its finest quality. “Kumanofude” is a collective term used to call these fine brushes produced in Kumano, Hiroshima Prefecture. Historically, the popularity of Kumanofude brush was due to the high literacy rate including commoners in the Edo era (around 1603-1867).

Kumanofude brush brand, Kubotago, has over one hundred year of history producing Kumanofude brush. During the one hundred years of history, Kubotago has had the honor of producing the brush for the Emperor Showa during his visit to the area.

Kumanofude calligraphy brush is said to be linked to the mentality of Japanese. Samurais were trained to write neat letters, under a belief that neat calligraphy handwriting was training of one’s mind for discipline, and calligraphy brush was a tool that reflected one’s mental state. Similar to characteristics of humans, good brush is said to possess four virtues; sharpness, evenness, roundness, dynamism—Sharpness: A brush must have a well-kept point; evenness: each and every hair must be balanced for wholeness; roundness: circularity to bring steadiness to letters; dynamism: for smooth brush strokes by resiliency.

With craftsman given the title Kumanofude Brush Traditional Craftsman from the government, Kubotago strives to keep producing Kumanofude calligraphy brush that satisfies calligraphy artists, educators, students and anyone interested in the art of calligraphy.
