Brause was founded in 1850 in Iserlohn, Germany. It rapidly developed into a modern company producing all kinds of nibs (drawing, writing, ornamental, calligraphy, etc.) Today, the company produces over 400 types of nibs as well as a wide range of calligraphy accessories. Since 1850, Brause has maintained a reputation for producing high-quality, steel calligraphy nibs favoured by artists and illustrators. These elegant nibs are made in the German town of Iserholn, where Brause have crafted their famous steel products for over a century.
Brause has been crafting a complete set of nibs considered to be one of the best on the market by calligraphers. With over 100 years of manufacturing experience, Brause is one of the rare companies to guarantee an essential quality for its nibs: a subtle balance between relative elasticity for easier writing, and necessary resistance for clear strokes.
