About BROSTOÙ

BRUSH MAKING DESIGN PROJECT
TRADITIONAL BRUSH MAKING
MADE WITH HORSEHAIR AND AGAVE FIBER 

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. Special editions of Anne's brushes are made with French horsehair. The brushes at Panorama Mundi are made of sisal, a natural fiber from the agave leaf and tied in a traditional star-shaped sailor's knot. The brushes can be used to sweep crumbs from the kitchen table or sand from your feet at the beach.
