Named after the exact location in Siberia where Escoda sources its Kolinsky-Tajmyr Sable, Reserva Series Brushes are crafted using only the tail hairs from the male Kolinsky — renowned for their springiness and capacity to retain liquids. Selection of fine materials, as well as Escoda's unique "curing" process, results in a watercolor brush that many artists consider to be perhaps the finest in the world.
Note — Brush sizes are not standardized. The length and width of a brush of a given shape and size varies considerably by manufacturer. Since fine art brushes are handmade, expect some variation even among brushes from a given manufacturer.

Kolinsky Sable Brush Shortage
Due to regulatory issues regarding the importation of Kolinsky hair, we are temporarily out of stock on many of our more popular brush styles. Be assured that we are working with our vendors and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to remedy this situation as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience.
