Have you ever heard of infant hair calligraphy brushes? It is a Chinese traditional craft of making calligraphy brush out of hair collected from the newborn’s first cut. With its history being traced back to the Tang Dynasty, the brush has been regarded as a kind of Feng Shui item, which helps make life easier if it is appropriately positioned at home. It is said that Master Cheung founded the craft brush business in 1837 during the Qing Dynasty and is now run by the 6th generation.
To deliver an authentic bespoke experience, Master Cheung shows an unyielding attitude towards every detail of the production. He will cut the infant’s hair in accordance with ancient royal etiquette. For the handle, he will analyse the infant’s five phases in life with Chinese geomantic calculations and select the corresponding materials that are best beneficial to the receiver. In his opinion, following the centuries-old traditions inherited from generations to generations should not be considered as superstition. He believes gaining certain knowledge in Feng Shui helps improve life quality.
