brush maker





Brush makers insert different types of material such as horsehair, vegetable fiber, nylon, and hog bristle into metal tubes called ferrules. They insert a wooden or aluminium plug into the bristles to form the brush head and attach the handle to the other side of the ferrule. They immerse the brush head in a protective substance to maintain their shape, finish and inspect the final product.

Scope note

Includes people performing the assembly of mops which is done by attaching yarn to the handle, thread and wrap wire through the yarn to secure it to the handle, trim excess yarn, finish and inspect the final product.
