The Escoda family began making brushes over 75 years ago. Their commitment be-gins with the belief that the brush as a tool is as important to an artist as the pen is to a writer or the chisel to a sculptor. They make brushes without compromise to materials or the time required so that each brush will respond the way an artist imagines it should.
The most important part of an artist brush is the hair that is used. Natural hair offers characteristics not often found in any other material. Escoda uses only the highest grade of hair so that each brush responds in the best possible manner.
Kolinsky Reserva/Optimo is the most highly regarded hair used in brushes. Kolinsky hair is unusu-ally resilient, holds sharp points and crisp edges and has terrific color holding capacity. It is most often used with oils, watercolors and other water based mediums.
