A Passion For Horses
Sustainable, Environmentally friendly, Vegan-friendly & Cruelty-free shaving brushes.
How do Vielong get European horsehair to make their natural hair brushes?
The love of horses and the passion for nurturing the “Pure Spanish Horse or Pura Raza española”, originally from Andalusia and considered one of the finest breeds in the world for its pure genetics, comes naturally as part of the traditions of our land. The Andalusian horse is also known worldwide for the perfection of its aesthetics and for its dazzling beauty and is also part of the DNA of Vielong, which is reflected in their natural horsehair brushes.
The arrival of spring begins with the grooming of the horses. Their care begins with a bath and continues with brushing the body and the hair. Next, the mane and tail hair is cut so that the horses can be cooler in summer and for their own hygiene and a healthier appearance.
For the great love and admiration, Vielong has for their horses and whilst respecting our environment, they carefully collect this hair, select the finest grade, treat it and trim it.
Once in their workshop, the hair goes through a process of conditioning, softening and sterilizing, to ensure that it complies with the strictest European processes of quality and hygiene. Using this method, when they incorporate the hair into the brushes they achieve an environmentally friendly, vegan-friendly, cruelty-free and ethical product of which they are proud of.
After more than 75 years of manufacturing shaving brushes and other items for men´s hair and skincare, Vielong continues to support and encourage the use of natural and high-quality raw materials obtained through native and sustainable sources for the development of their products.
The shaving experience with our natural Spanish horsehair brushes is unrivalled. The softness, the texture and the unique facial massage a horsehair brush give have converted many shavers to use our brushes as part of their skincare routine. The indisputable quality of the Andalusian horse makes Vielong natural hair brushes a unique product in the market, both nationally and internationally.
