We produce the vast majority of our brushes in our modern manufacturing facility in Bechhofen (Northern Bavaria). We are fans and proud of "Made in Germany" and are constantly expanding our competencies and capacities in Germany.

We offer a very wide range of various natural hair and synthetic trim materials. Together with our customers and taking into account the intended use, we determine the best solution. We also offer a wide range of vegan brush series.


9. Where do the natural hair and synthetic fibers used come from?

We obtain our high-quality raw materials such as natural hair and synthetic fibers from an international, long-standing partner network. The natural hairs are "dressed" according to our quality specifications, i.e. washed or cleaned, combed and sorted and thus prepared for further processing into high-quality brush heads in bundles.

Synthetic fibers made of PBT or nylon are mainly sourced from Asia, where the fiber industry is concentrated. All synthetic fibers are, for example, pointed, crimped or colored according to our specifications and checked by our experienced brush makers for functionality and durability.

10. How are the brushes packed?

For environmental reasons, we try to avoid packaging material and especially the use of plastics as much as possible. We can offer a wide variety of standard packaging for safe transport protection. We usually develop sales packaging together with our customers or receive it from them.
Our brush specialists will be happy to show you our packaging options in detail.
