Isabey Brushes

Over 100 years of crafting exquisite artist brushes by hand.

For centuries beautiful handmade brushes for artists have been crafted in Brittany, France. The art of fine brushmaking has been passed on from generation to generation of Bretons, and the brushes made today are the legacy of that tradition. It takes the brushmakers 7 years to learn how to make the brushes of the Isabey line. Isabey brushmakers must apprentice 10 years before being allowed to make the Kolinsky sable, red sable and Siberian blue squirrel mop brushes.

Every Isabey brush is completely made by hand from start to finish, and completely hand dressed including the washing, sorting and shaving of the hair. 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. The adherence to this tradition that has been passed through the centuries makes Isabey brushes the finest in the world.
