All of our Bristlebrush animals are designed and developed right here in Australia by talented and creative artists. Once the designs are complete the base manufacturing takes place overseas in the Philippines. Each animal is made from the Buri Palm. This renewable source of palm is native to the Philippines and grows new, harvestable fronds every month! This makes our Bristlebrush products very environmentally sustainable.
The stalks of the palms are first soaked in bleach, causing them to separate into a ver strong, yet relatively soft "bristle fibre". These fibres are then dried, cut and rolled around a central wire, creating a "Bristle Brush".
Once this process is complete, each Bristlebrush animal is then hand cut, hand painted and beautifully finished with eyes, wings, legs, feet and beaks made fron seeds, nuts, courn husk and light tree wood.
