A STORY OF 75.000.000 BRUSHES
In the northeast of the Iberian Peninsula, you will find Barcelona. In 1933 in this city, the first artist brush factory in Spain was born. From that date until now quite possibly 75.000.000 brushes have been manufactured, all handmade and following deep-rooted traditional procedures.
A LONG-STANDING TRADITION
Towards the end of 1933 Josep Escoda Roig founded a small family company. His two sons extended it and now the third generation is ensuring its continuity. This long trajectory now forms part of the history, and the speciality the permanent pride of one family.
LEADERS IN QUALITY AND DESIGN
Escoda was the first brush manufacturer in Europe to be awarded the ISO UNE-ISO 9001/100 Quality Certificate. This prestigious recognition is the result of devotion in line with continuous improvement in the design and quality of its brushes.
The tenacity of almost 85 years devoted to a unique and increasingly specific activity enables Escoda to compare the writer’s quill or the sculptor’s chisel to the seismograph and a brush, as they all transmit the sensitivity of the artist, converting his or her inspiration into art.
A HANDCRAFTED BRUSH
There are no machines to make quality artist brushes. Our machines are our hands, nails, fingertips, touch, intuition and the innate skill of every operator with their many years of practice and experience. All these qualities combine to perform the miracle of creating a brush.
WE INVITE YOU TO TRY OUR BRUSHES
The brush is quite a modest tool but without its invention immortal works of painting would not have been conceived. Pick up an Escoda brush, enjoy its contact with your hands, experience its sweetness, confirm its docility, observe its behaviour and verify its durability. Whether you are trying it brand new, already used or unusable due to its age, it will always be your faithful friend.
We have been leaders in the Spanish market since the beginning of the Escoda brush and for more than 30 years they are sold all around the world, being more than 50% of production for the international market.
