Thanks to the busy hands of skilled brush-makers and apprentices,
guided by their departmental supervisors,
more than 10.000 artist brushes of high quality are made in our factory
each day. Visitors often express their surprise at the calm atmosphere
which is not usually found in a "factory".
They compare it to laboratories and studios - as the silence of
concentration prevails, interrupted only by occasional conversation.
Now and again rhythmic knocking noises are to be heard.
The brass cases filled with hair bundles and the marble working tables
have always encouraged brush-makers to beat time somewhere
between Dixieland and marching music.
