The iconic British brand, Kent Brushes (FSC-C158749), was founded in 1777. Since then, they've become known as one of the finest hairbrush manufacturers in the world. They are one of the oldest British companies trading today, and as a Royal Warrant Holder for hairbrushes, Kent Brushes has supplied Royal households for nine consecutive Sovereign reigns.
They were also involved in both World Wars, equipping millions of brushes to Army, Navy and RAF troops. They even created special brushes in which maps and compasses were concealed to help the war effort.
Kent's brand values include quality, expertise, heritage, inclusivity, and sustainability.
Kent Brushes are amongst the few hairbrush manufacturers left in the UK. They are extremely proud of their British manufacturing heritage and wish to maintain their remarkable reputation through their dedication to exceeding all customer expectations.
