Lola Products CorporationLola brush (1934)
The Lola history dates back to 1857, when Paul Schmidt founded a brush factory, A. Schmidt & Co. The Lola brush, named after their warehouse, Lockstedter Lager, was first presented on the Leipziger Messe in 1934. Made of pure beech wood with the familiar red stripe around the arm, the Lola brush was an instant success and is still regarded as a synonym for a high quality product within the household goods sector. A true icon of German domestic lifestyle.
When it was picked up by the US in the sixties, the popularity of this icon went sky-high. The then named Lola-Werke Gebr. Schmidt company was taken over by US-based Lola Products Corporation, who manufactures this brush to the very day, using the same blueprint of eighty years ago.
