Inspired by accessories of yesteryear, timeless objects in natural materials, pleasing to the eye as well as practical, these tools will become your faithful daily companions.
A century ago, Andrée Jardin’s future husband, Georges Renée Julio, started out as an apprentice brush maker in Nantes. In 1947, he opened his own factory and the adventure began..
Over the years the brush factory supplied more and more industrial clients, and from father to son, the company became specialised in tailor-made brushes.
Our wood, both beech and heat-treated ash, is locally sourced from sustainably managed forests.
The bristles are made of natural materials, namely white hog bristle, horsehair or plant fibres.
For these reasons, Brosserie Julio carries the label EPV (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant). This is a French government award, given to companies demonstrating excellent craftsmanship and industrial know-how.
Our production methods, in small batches, remain artisanal even today. We are convinced this is the best way to fight against the ‘throw away’ trend of wipes and disposable systems.
