Good brushes is fundamental to be able to take care of your shoes in a good way. We have developed a complete range of shoe brushes of really high quality together with a German factory. After working with shoes and shoe care for many years ourself, and gained lots of input from our customers, we have learned what makes brushes good. Some of the things we focused on when developing these brushes were the following:
- User-friendly shapes
- Bristles that don't break or come loose too much
- Sustainable production with natural and environmentally friendly material

Down in the South West parts of Germany, bordering to Switzerland and France, the area Black Forest is located (Schwarzwald in German). It's a relatively inaccessible terrain with lots of mountains and forests, where industrialisation came late, so the knowledge in traditional craftsmanship especially within woodwork has been well developed. Since centuries back it's been a centre for manufacturing of different tupes of brushes, and still today Black Forest is somewhat the Mecca of brush manufacturing in Europe. Here the factory we decided to work with is located, founded almost 80 years ago.



All brushes are made in exclusive beechwood that comes from local trees in Black Forest. The wood is varnished in a deep red-brown mahogany shade, with gold coloured Skolyx logo. Most of the brushes then have bristles made of natural hairs that comes from European animals. For example the horsehair brushes are made of the highest quality of hair which comes from the tail. It's really durable and minimise bristles coming loose or break.
We are also very proud to be able to offer these premium brushes to really affordable prices, making it possible for everyone to buy brushes of the best quality.
