The once robust American shaving brush industry went virtually extinct as shavers opted for the convenience of a cold aerosol can decades ago. A small group of wise individuals and passionate enthusiasts took it upon themselves to burgeon traditional shaving methods bringing many out of the dark.
The damage, however, had been done. An American shaving brush was a reality made only by acquiring relics from the last century and diligently refurbishing them back to life. As with many manufacturing industries in America, methods and efforts that once bastioned our economy were a thing of the past.
What can we do when an industry has been lost? We can recreate it. The Varlet is a step in that direction.
