A family brush shop in a quiet German countryside has been crafting quality brushes since the 1930's. By using the finest materials from nature, this brush combines pure boar bristles with rounded wood pins in a solid olive wood handle. A combination brush such as this cannot be made by machine. It can only be made by hand. This brush has been crafted especially for the natural care of lovely thick hair.
The Boar Bristles
At the extreme elevations of the rugged Tibet Plateau in western China, small family farms raise a special type of wild boar. At these high altitudes the boars grow firm, strong bristles. The boars are raised for their meat, but the bristles are saved for the merchant who travels from farm to farm to purchase them. It is these unique boar bristles, which come from the boar's neck area, that are the most desirable for a high quality brush.
The structure of the boar bristle is very similar to that of human hair. Quality boar bristles absorb oils from the scalp, and when the hair is brushed, this oil is transferred down the hair shaft creating a natural sheen and nourishment for the hair.
The Wood Pins
The rounded wood pins come from the Hornbeam tree, grown in the forests of Italy and Poland. This particular wood is so hard and strong, it is also known as Ironwood. The wood pins combined with the boar bristles penetrate through thick hair.
The Olive Wood Handle
The golden color and contrasting dark veins of the olive wood are a beautiful and extraordinary creation of nature. Distinctive in both appearance and history, the olive tree has held symbolic importance since ancient times. Carefully crafted of wood from the old olive groves of southern Europe near the Mediterranean Sea. It is only when this valuable tree is near the end of its long life and ceases to bear fruit that it is released to the wood trade.

Absolutely love this brush! Enough boar hair to distribute the oil to the ends of my waist long hair and enough wood pegs to get through my thick hair to detangle it. Works just as I’d hoped it would and it’s worth the money if you like your hair to be healthy and benefiting from your naturally produced oils. Highly recommend this brush to anyone looking to get a good long lasting brush that was made with the environment and product quality kept in mind. The handle is exquisite, one of a kind, very comfortable to hold in both hands and brushing your hair every which way. You won’t be disappointed, even the packaging is beautiful. Unknown
Love it! What could be better than both boar bristles AND wooden bristles!! Linda
