Redecker is a family owned German company that stands for the successful combination of design, functionality and the use of beautiful, sustainable wood and natural, ethically sourced fibres. Today traditional hand threading is increasingly being replaced by machines with very few people worldwide who have mastered the intracies of brush making. However, Redecker's son continues to pass on his knowledge to anyone interested, and – of course – to those who work in the Redecker brush factory.
Redecker has been family owned for 75 years and is now in its third generation. When the entrepreneurial blind craftsman, Friedrich Redecker Senior, passed away in 1986 at age 72 it seemed that that was the end of his small brush making company as none of his sons wished to carry on the tradition. With the remaining stock, his youngest son Gernot Redecker and his wife decided they would sell the brushes at a local market stall. Nobody could have guessed the success and all products were sold out during the first weekend. Soon the little company that none of the sons wished to continue was booming and the Redecker legacy has lived on to the third generation.
The art of good ideas are a combination of experience and of the courage to ask questions. Discussion, experimentation and development are constantly breathing new life into the Redecker concept.
