How a Leo Prinz boar bristle brush is made
Searching for the perfect piece of wood
At the beginning of a Leo Prinz Natural Hair Brush there is always the selection of the perfect piece of wood. We pay special attention to finding suitable pieces in already existing woods in order to reduce waste and cut down fewer new trees. One part comes from recycling small pieces of furniture, accessories and tools. Such pieces have high quality and beautiful grains due to their age and storage. In the case of maple Kebony wood, a bio-finishing process is added afterwards, which makes the wood less susceptible to moisture and gives it a denser feel.
The brush is shaped
Next, the rough machining begins. The unique brush body is now extracted from a solid piece of wood. In the next step, the fine edges are milled with special tools. Finally, the fine sanding follows. Some of this can only be done by specialists by hand.
Refinement of the brush body
After thorough cleaning, the brush bodies are carefully lacquered and dried in several layers. This finishing process makes the brush surface smooth and sealed. This results in significantly better protection against moisture , making the brush ideal for your use in environments such as the bathroom.
Every hair type gets an individual pattern

A unity between boar bristles and brush body is created
The wooden handle and the high-quality boar bristles are now used to create a genuine Leo Prinz boar bristle brush.
Depending on the brush model, different numbers of holes are milled into the brush body. Then each bristle bundle, which has been neatly sorted beforehand, is anchored individually.
This process is carried out completely by hand in the Professional (hand-pulled) models. It can only be carried out by a few specialists with years of training. Here, even the tools needed for this are specially made by hand.
The material used is minimal and the bristles are given the same orientation as the wooden shape, which is modelled on the shape of the head.
The next step is the individually appropriate finishing process. The bristle field is checked either for straightness or for effiliation. At first glance, the imperfection in the effiliation may appear to be faulty. However, the function behind it is a desired unevenness that can better handle individual diversity in the hair.
Overhanging bristles are cut off and checked for defects. Then they are packed and sent directly to you.
