It is a place where you can learn so much in just one or two days, regarding the world of brushes and the equipment to manufacture not just all kinds of brushes, brooms and mops, but also their component parts such as handles, brush blocks, fibers and more. This place is “The Brush District” and you are welcome to visit!
