Here in Germany, they will sell you the Chinese-made cheapo brushes.....like they do in the US. Or you can go to a 'mom-and-pop' shop in a couple of the bigger towns, which specialize in handmade brushes.
So I was down Leipzig Strasse in Frankfurt, and came across this little small shop that still sells the handmade stuff.
Hundreds of different types of brushes, for every practical occasion. Soft bristles, hard bristles, bristles from horses, bristles from durable long-lasting products.
Finding something like this in the US? Well, if you live around the Mennonite community....maybe. Otherwise, you'd have to order something from a warehouse in Georgia....and wait for Uncle Gus to rummage through the stock-room and find what you need.
