Kolinsky Sable is preferred for its incredible springiness and color holding capacity. It is ideal for oil and watercolor. Escoda accepts only the very best kolinsky hair. Escoda Reserva brushes are made from the valued hair from the Tajmyr region of Western Siberia. Escoda Kolisnky-Tajmyr is hair that comes from only male tails and is sometimes preferred because it offers a bit more resiliency and snap.
Each Escoda brush head is made by hand, one at a time. An exclusive triple crimp permanently secures each ferrule to every handle. The lightweight handles never warp and are perfectly balanced. Escoda "cures" each brush with an exclusive process unknown and unavailable to any other manufacturer. This builds a memory into each brush allowing it to keep its shape and enhance the desired natural characteristics of the fine hairs and synthetic filaments.
