Did you know that your body gets rid of over half a kilo of waste products from your skin daily? Therefore, brushing your skin is essential in order to get rid of dead cells and is a vital part of any detox programme. It keeps your skin clear, free to breathe and also stimulates the blood and lymph flow - giving you a feeling of well-being whilst also making your skin feel brighter and softer. Our FD6  body brushes are made from the finest timbers and pure white bristle and are designed to compliment body shape and clean, massage and gently exfoliate the skin #toptiptuesday #didyouknow #kentbrushes #luxurybrushes #luxury #bestbrushes #brushes #brushexperts #brushexpert #brushmakers #brushmaking #bodybrush #bodybrushes #showerbrush #exfoliation #exfoliate #exfoliating #cleanyourskin #exfoliateyourskin #skinfacts

The non-scratch, ion quills in our AirHedz Glo range have been proven to have many restorative benefits on hair: the capillary vessels, which are responsible for the transfer of nutrients and the removal of waste products, become stimulated and the cuticle layer is tightened, which results in natural oils becoming sealed on the hair. This will protect your hair from daily UV and environmental damage, whilst also preventing split ends - leaving your hair soft, smooth and vitalised. #kentbrushes #luxurybrushes #luxury #bestbrushes #handmade #handmadebrushes #heritage #traditional #hairbrushes #haircare #haircareexpert #brushmaking #brushexperts #brushexpert #brushesofinstagram #ionbrush #hairtips #toptiptuesday #tiptuesday #hairadvice #tuesdayhairtip

An absolute work of art…cut from a single piece of ebony wood, our OHE1 Indian bristle brush is completely handmade. It can take up to twelve people to make just one of these stunning brushes. #kentbrushes #luxurybrushes #luxury #bestbrushes #handmade #handmadebrushes #heritage #traditional #premium #highestquality #brushmakers #brushmaking #brushexpert #madeinuk #madeinbritain #woodenbrush #woodenbrushes #bristlebrushes #bestbritishbrushes #brushesforlife #brushesofinstagram
“How do I explain to the parents? Should I do this? Not every kid will respond well, but it’s important to go through this and experience the making process. Ahhh just gonna try!” Many times I emphasize how process of art making is key and really beautiful. That’s where we see grit, patience, narrative, problem solving, critical thinking and their experiments. Today a table filled with different materials for them to make their own brushes and mark making. The kids examine how to make a brush, explore the ways to hold and used. “Is this a similar marking as this piece?” “No Miss Ly, it’s different directions, look closely!” Instead of pushing them to experiment in ways I do, today I learnt to step back more and see it from their point of view. 👀
New bamboo brush to play with.
A classic… 👒🎩 Our LHS9 is handmade and features a stunning beechwood base and a rich satinwood back. Timeless and elegant - it’s also stamped with the instantly-recognisable Kent logo and our Royal Warrant. #kentbrushes #luxurybrushes #luxury #bestbrushes #handmade #handmadebrushes #heritage #traditional #premium #highestquality #brushesforlife #brushmaking #prestigebrand #haircareexpert #handmadeinBritain #madeinbritain #madeinuk #hairbrushes #brushmakers

Thick and stubby, deer hair and bamboo brush.
#BadHairDay ? No problem. Our extra large cushion PF07 pure bristle brush is perfect for straightening & smoothing. The natural bristle stimulates the hairs natural oils and distributes them through the hair - leaving it shiny, clean and naturally conditioned. #kentbrushes #luxurybrushes #luxury #bestbrushes #handmade #hairbrushes #bristle #bristlebrushes #naturalbristles #naturalbristlebrush #naturalconditioner #smoothhair #shinyhair #hairexperts #haircareexperts #besthairbrushes #brushmakers #brushmaking #brushexpert #brushesofinstagram #greathair

The London Letterheads event had many different talks, workshops and demonstrations, including this one from our very own brushmaker Craig! — #Repost @alexmayhughes with @get_repost ・・・ #tbt 👌🏻💫 Really facsinating talk and demonstration by Craig Masons at #londonletterheads who makes the @ashandover brushes.

Unpractical painting device for @ipihan_the_project. I took the window opener mechanism from the window in the background to build this tool. Structure is made out of window frames from another room. The strap was the electric wire going through this actual space and makes it surprisingly comfortable to carry and use this tool. This brush is very useful if you would like to elevate you painting skills to that of a cat (see blue paint in the background) (And I’ll post some moving images as soon as I get them). #ifparadiseishalfasnice #ipihan8 #daanbotlek #brushmaking #toolmaking #uselesstool #ergonomicbrush #moeilijkdoen #ipihanwaarlegdatdan

Something new from Kent Brushes! A couple of months ago, we did a very special collaboration with the truly talented artist @xavierlust. For this year’s @wallpapermag Handmade, Xavier Lust wanted to create something extra special: a massage chair covered with brush hairs. To complete the work, Lust approached us to use our special brush-making skills to fully cover the chair in natural boar bristles by using traditional hand-drawing methods, which only Kent still do in the UK. Through the use of premium bristles, the ‘La Belle et la Bête’ lounge chair offers a massage that encourages both blood circulation and full body relaxation. #kentbrushes #luxury #luxurybrand #luxurybrushes #somethingnew #wednesdaynews #tradition #heritagebrand #heritage #brushmakers #handmade #handmadebrushes #brushexperts #brushmaking #bristle #boarbristle #premiumbristles #collaboration #design #skills #traditionalskills #handdrawing #traditonalmethod #wallpaperhandmade
