For centuries beautiful handmade brushes for artists have been crafted in Brittany, France. A region famous for fishing, the men of Brittany have traditionally left at dawn to man the boats, while the craftswomen of Brittany stayed at home to make the world's most beautiful handmade lace and fine art brushes. The art of fine brushmaking has been passed on from generation to generation of Bretons.
Every Isabey brush is completely made by hand from start to finish. All Isabey brushes are shaped exclusively during the mounting of the hair, without further cutting or re-shaping of its tip. Through traditional methods, careful selection of materials, the strictest quality control and unparalleled pride in workmanship, Isabey crafts brushes of distinction that are truly works of art.
