It's pretty hard to find non-plastic hand brush options. This rustically styled brush takes you back in time and works better than the plastic options currently on the market. It is a truly beautiful object. This brush is designed to work well with the Delta dust pan. The handle is made of sustainably harvested German beechwood treated with protective linseed oil. The bristles are natural, thoroughly cleaned horse hair. Please note that no horses were harmed to make these brushes. As with all the brushes we sell, the natural bristles were ethically obtained. There is also a handy leather hanging strap. Sustainably made in Germany by a dynamic, ethical family business committed to creating the highest quality products from natural renewable materials using old world techniques and modern designs and technology. We have visited them and their facilities in Germany and were extremely impressed.
