RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
The brushes manufactured by Borciani Bonazzi have an ancient, artisan soul, while also representing the modern result of contemporary manufacturing processes and leading-edge research and development.
The excellence of the Borciani Bonazzi artistic brushes is the result of manufacturing processes based on attention to every single detail and constant materials’ research, leading to brush collections with unique features in terms of ergonomics, functionality and artistic results, thus granting satisfaction to the most demanding artists.
The basic ‘ingredients’ ensuring the high quality of Borciani Bonazzi brushes are:
The different types of hair – natural or synthetic - allow for a varied range of products, corresponding to the features required by the different types of color or painting technique used by the artist that chooses the Borciani Bonazzi painting tools.
The Borciani Bonazzi production is shifting increasingly towards the use of high-technology and cruelty-free synthetic fibres.
The diminishing availability of valuable natural hair has increased the cost of this raw material, thus prompting technological research to develop a synthetic composition that reproduces the features of natural hair and imitates their elasticity, twisting resistance, capability of absorption.
The evolution of such research has unveiled various fibres or special mixtures, some of which currently covered by patents. Also in this particular context, skill and experience allow to select the most suitable material for each specific purpose, or to obtain desired characteristics using different mixtures of materials.
Along with natural hair brushes - sable, vair, ox-hair and bristle - Borciani Bonazzi offers different types of synthetic fibres, that are listed in the catalogue in ranking order by thread “firmness”:
