WHY WE LOVE THIS

The origins of this family-owned company extend back three generations and were born of neccesity and drive. Friedrich Redecker Sr. began to develop blindness at the age of four and – when several operations yielded no improvement to his condition – he was enrolled in the Soest School for The Blind where he received what was standard training for the blind at that time: the craft of making brushes.

Today, Felix Redecker and his team are still committed to making a superior product. The expansive product range has grown to include not only cleaning brushes but cooking utensils and grooming products as well. The company is also committed to the environment and make use of FSC certified woods and non-toxic finishes. Their products are as beautiful as they are practical and – in many cases – built for a lifetime of use.
