A Short History of our traditional brush manufacture:

A Short History of our traditional brush manufacture Our traditional kolibri brush manufacture was established in 1898 in Bechhofen , a small city in Bavaria, Germany. The founder Karl Feurer established a small brush Factory where he produced a wide range of the finest hair and quill brushes. Soon the Company had to be expanded and in 1903, our headquarters were established in Burk, Germany, where it is still situated. The first customers of the company lived in the neighbourhood, but soon customers in foreign countries, especially in the south and south-east Europe, became loyal customers.

About Hair Brush :

About Hair Brush It may be interesting to know that the production of hair and bristle brushes in Germany can be traced back to as early the 18th century, with fine brushes been made especially in the Bechhofen and Burk area. Ever since and up to our present day and time, animal hair imported from various parts of both Europe and Asia, has been and is used for the production of brushes. The following will give you some more detailed information on the most used types of hair.

Imitation Sable Hair (Sabeline): The often called Red Sable imitation is made from ox ear hair which is dyed in a colour similar to that of red sable hair. Only ox ear hair with the best tips is suited for this purpose.:

Only ox ear hair with the best tips is suited for this purpose. Red sable hair: Red Sable hair comes from the tails of different members of the weasel family. This type of hair is the most elastic hair and it is, therefore, best suited for artists’ brushes. Brushes made from this material are unparalleled for their fineness and durability. Kolinsky Hair: Kolinsky is absolutely the best natural hair for artists’ brushes. It comes from the tails of Siberian Kolinsky martens.

Pony hair: Pony hair comes from Japan and China. This hair is available in different shades, from light red to dark brown and black. Although it is equally a soft material, it is not as fine and resilient as squirrel hair. This is why only regular water color brushes are made of this type of material.:

Ox Ear hair: Is fine, elastic and with best tips. It is particularly qualified for the production of sign writer-, lining brushes, oil artists’ brights , rounds and flats and last but not least for lacquering brushes. Fitch hair: Fitch Hair comes from the Polecat. This hair is black- grayish color and is short in length. Its fineness and elasticity is almost up the quality of red sable hair. Artists’ brushes such as oil painting brushes, china painting brushes and best water color brushes are made from this type of natural hair.
