ABOUT ANDRÉE JARDIN

A century ago, Andrée Jardin’s future husband, Georges Renée Julio, started out as an apprentice brush maker in Nantes. In 1947, he opened his own factory and the adventure began. Over the years the brush factory supplied more and more industrial clients, and from father to son, the company became specialised in tailor-made brushes. 

With the arrival of plastic and the beginning of globalisation, what used to be called "Parisian goods" started to lose their value: hair brushes, toilet brushes, toothbrushes, make-up brushes, cloth brushes, cleaning brushes and brooms. To such a point that today it is still difficult to find an authentic broom, handbrush, or, even more, a real dust brush. Determined to refute this sad state of affairs, Jean-Baptiste and François-Marie, Andrée’s grandchildren, reissued the mythical brushes with French beechwood frames: Real brushes that last!
