What are the features of ox-hair brushes and what uses are they suitable for?

Ox-hair, as for all the other types of natural hair, is first sterilized by boiling, then processed through various operations, for the most part jealously kept secret, that allow this natural fiber to preserve its peculiar features.
Only Europe has kept the ability to process ox-hair in this traditional fashion, and this is the main reason why the hair produced here is particularly valuable.
This type of hair, used earlier by the Etruscans in the 4th century B.C. for their frescoes in Tarquinia, and by the ancient Egyptians for decorating the pyramids, has always been used for prized brushes where there was a need for polyvalence in painting techniques, in contrast with the coarser hog bristles.
The Borciani Bonazzi brand started being associated with excellent quality, for its expert use of the best selections of ox-hair, from the very beginning of their production.
The selection requested by Borciani Bonazzi is so accurate, that it has become a category of goods over time.
