Kolinsky Red Sable

Brushes made of Kolinsky red sable hair mark the highest quality level of artist brushes made of natural hair. Only the fine tail hair of the Siberian weasel (Mustela sibirica) is used for these brushes. The long hairs of the Kolinsky are rarer and correspondingly more valuable as well. For all red sable brushes, the length of the hair and the workmanship are decisive for the quality and price of the brushes.

Experienced painters notice the difference and appreciate the perfect tip, outstanding color absorption, and great resilience of these brushes. Kolinsky brushes are most valued for watercolor painting but are also used for other media as well as for sophisticated crafts and restoration.
