German brush powerhouse Burstenhaus Redecker has been around since the 1930s, when Herr Redecker himself — after becoming blind as a child — taught himself the artisan craft of brushmaking using only the best wood and ethically-sourced natural fibers.

This one is helpfully labeled WildlederBürste on the top (German for 'suede brush') and is large enough for boots, bags, and jackets. The brass wire picks up dirt and works with the nap, while the outer bristles fluff it back up.
