Founded in 1777 by William Kent, G.B. Kent & Sons are the world’s oldest brush manufacturer. Kent offer an extensive choice of over 250 products, ranging from brushes for hair, body, clothes, make-up, teeth and shaving. The Kent family continued to run the company for six generations until 1932 when the last of the three Kent brothers passed away. The company was taken over by Eric L.H Cosby, owner of Cosby Brushes Ltd., and since then Kent Brushes has been under the direction of the Cosby family.
