Since its creation, Fournival Altesse has been based in Mouy, Oise, the true cradle of the French brush industry. Since 1875, for five generations, the company has continued a tradition of brush-making through its ancestral know-how and its respect for standards of excellence. For its traditional manufacturing, it uses the finest raw materials: exotic woods and wood of French origin, as well as the best bristle quality. Fournival Altesse is also the last company in the world to produce brushes entirely made by hand, continuing the shaping and empoilage techniques from the 19th century.
