Da Vinci has for three generations created the finest quality artists and speciality brushes. Fine Artists made their own paint brushes until the 18th century when a Nuremberg crafts guild began to master the art of brush making and Nuremberg soon established itself as the centre for brush making. Hans-Friedrich Defet is the third generation of his family to continue the family da Vinci brand and it now offers the largest selection of artist’s brushes in the world. Using the finest materials and traditional craftsmanship along with input from professional artists, da Vinci creates paint brushes that handle beautifully with unsurpassed quality and performance. Da Vinci are the only art supplies manufacturer that continue to buy whole Kolinsky Sable tails and completes all making and dressing of brushes in house. Da Vinci Brushes are precisely made with great elasticity, colour holding capacity and regain their shape when paint is absorbed. All da Vinci brushes are handmade with brush making skills being passed down to apprentices. By combining traditional brush making techniques with the latest innovations, da Vinci has become the brand of choice for fine artists worldwide.
