Broustoù, Breton for brushes, is a design project that explores the art of brushmaking using natural materials. French designer Anne Texier works to preserve traditional brush making techniques and horsehair crafts by connecting agriculture with design. Anne learned to work with horsehair from Christian Augoyard, former director of the Manufacture Française du Crin and to make brushes by hand from Danish brush makers.
