Brush & Dustpan

Bürstenhaus Redecker

Established 1935

Founded in 1935 by Friedrich Redecker, Bürstenhaus Redecker is a third-generation, family-owned manufacturer of handmade brushes. It all started when Friedrich Redecker started to become blind at an early age. He was enrolled in the Soest school for the blind, where he received the standard training for the blind of the time: the craft of making brushes. Over time, Redecker built up a small company, with which he could provide for his wife and three sons. When Redecker senior died in 1986, his youngest son, Gernot, decided to continue with the Redecker brush company.

The Redecker dustpan is also an object of beauty:
