The fabrics for the Tsuge boxwood brush from Japan are naturally dried for greater than 3 years and hand-carved in my view. Camellia oil is applied again and again into the brush to bring out its gloss.
History of the Satsuma tsuge boxwood The top temperature and top humidity of Kagoshima, Japan is absolute best weather for healthy plants.
Particularly the southern Satsuma district that is referred to as the house of Boxwood and an abundant provide of fabrics.
The standard and the luster of the chic Jap rose colour of wooden is dense and difficult; it was once mentioned that the colour of the boxwood of Satsuma is superb and was once frequently used for making seal fabrics and hair combs.
It’s mentioned that the origin of the “satsuma tsuge comb” began whilst samurai warriors from Satsuma clan first began making them as they returned from Edo after completing the flood prevention works at Kiso River throughout the Edo duration.
