Escoda Round

ESCODA BRUSHES – recognized as some of the finest in the world. In a small town outside of Barcelona in the fall of 1933, Josep Escoda Roig (1902-1982) created a brush factory to produce artist brushes. It would be the first of its kind in Spain and despite a Civil War and difficulty in obtaining raw materials, the company developed and grew. His vision and passion for producing the best brushes in the world continues to this day with his sons Josep Jr. and Ricard. It is is now a 3rd generation company with sons and daughters of both brothers following in their grandfather’s footsteps.

SILVER BRUSHES – considered high end, sold primarily to professional artists since the company was founded in 1991. The Ruby Satins are synthetic brushes that have excellent spring, and are ideal for painters who value very tight edge control. The Grand Prix brushes are 100% interlocked, deeply natural flagged Chunking white bristle. Chung King bristle is historically the standard reference for oil painting, strong enough to push the paint.
