Leistner Horse Grooming Brushes - Materials
William Leistner uses a variety of materials when it comes to making their horse grooming brushes.
For example, they use 86 different wooden back designs made from carefully processed beech wood and pear wood from European forests which are sustainably managed.
In addition, they make 80 different (in type and length) bristles, hair and fiber materials. Their natural bristled brushes use the following types of materials:
wild boar bristles
natural union mix fibers - made from palmyra plants
tampico (Mexican fibers) - made from agave plants
Below are some of the brushes that we carry at Teddy's Tack Trunk, including a detailed description of the materials used.
Many of the brushes also have vegetable tanned, leather strap handles and because they are hand nailed, they can be adjusted, if needed. Push a small screwdriver under the nail head and remove the nail with slight pressure. Or, take it to a leather shop and they would be able to do it, as well.
