In case you hadn’t guessed, Best Brushes is a new Catalog endeavor from your friends at Lilliput Motor Company and Deutsche Optik. You might ask, why do another catalog when you could integrate these products into those books… Well, because the product range is so broad, that we felt the category deserved its own little book. Homo-Sapiens have been inventing, refining and using these tools for millennia. The only changes, really, in the last couple of decades, has been going to plastics and synthetics, which in our estimation, are the bane of quality brushes! For example: from when men decided to rid themselves of facial hair, it took a long time to arrive at a brush with which to suds up a face… It took even longer to arrive at a brush made with badger hair, which wound up being the best for the purpose. Now that you sort of understand where we are coming from, we’ll continue to add some compatible products that fit tightly into this genre, because there’s a lot of very interesting and hard to find products that you might find desirable and useful.
Many of these fine brushes are made by hand, utilizing only the finest materials. The handles are made of beech, oak, pear, ash, and olive wood. The animal bristles range from Boar, Horse, Badger, to Chinese long-haired Goat. The vegetable fiber bristles used, range from Tampico fiber gotten from the leaf ribs of an agave from Mexico; Palmyra fiber comes from the palms in Sri Lanka; Arenga from the leaf fibers of the Asian sugar palm; Sisal derives from the Mexican sisal palm; Coco fiber from the fruit of the coco palm; Rice Straw is a misnomer.., it really comes from sorghum from the Balkans.
