Broustoù is a design project bringing local draft horse breeds and local craftsmanship together by using horsehair to create brushes. Broustoù aims to pay tribute to (often endangered) horse breeds and rural territories by connecting agriculture to design, and to participate in the safeguard of the horsehair crafts, brush making and rural intangible heritage.

Bretagne Edition

Sinagot is a small sailing boat from the South of Bretagne which sails are dyed with sea water and crushed pine bark, giving them a warm orange color. The Bretagne Edition is produced in a very limited number. The brush is handmade in Copenhagen by the craftsmen of Blindes Arbejde with natural horse hair collected on living and healthy Traits Bretons, a local breed. It can be used to either dust or polish your leather goods. Each brush is unique.

— Beech wood tinted with pigmented linseed oil
— Steel thread
— Beige Mix Trait Breton horsehair


Small marks on the wood and differences in color may appear due to the artisanal process of coloring and producing the brush. Color variation may also appear in horshair.
