EXTREME Kolinsky Brushes
Over the years, we have observed a shift in the quality of Fine Artist Brushes. As the market drives prices down, eventually a lowering of quality can occur. Richeson has sought out the world’s finest brush maker to produce a Kolinsky watercolor brush that will exceed the dreams and demands of the most discriminating painter. Each brush is carefully created by hand using only the highest possible percentage of male hair.
Quality to challenge any Kolinsky

Point and snap that painters

Made by skilled German artisans

What is Kolinsky?
The first known use of the name Kolinsky was around 1851. The term refers to several varieties of Asian Weasels. Most typically referenced is the Marten weasel. The yellowish brown tail from the weasel is used to make high grade artist brushes.  The finest Kolinsky hair comes from the Kolin Peninsula and then from a very high ratio of male hair to female hair. The female lives in an underground burrow and is rarely outside. The male is the hunter and forager. He hunts to bring food back to the family. Because he is outdoors most of the time, his coat is rich and thick and long. Their natural diet is one reason why farming these weasels has never been very successful.
