Axus began in 1974 as a simple decorator’s merchant in North West London. With the opinions of hundreds of professional decorators fueling their ideas for creating their very own décor range, they studied the very products that they already sold to formulate the best brushes on the market.
And they continue to do that!
You can still be a part of Axus’ design process, even today. In 2019 they created the Ax Test Panel which is made up of a range of decorators across the world who try their products and give their honest opinions, which their product teams take into consideration at every stage of the design process. And as of 2020, each one of their products has a QR code on its packaging for you to leave your reviews too!
So, what are their top performing brushes?
Blue Series Pro-Brush Paint Brushes
Our top pick are Axus’ Pro-Brush brushes. They feature a slightly stiff, full-bodied stock of tapered synthetic filaments which allow the brush to pick up of large amounts of paint and evenly deliver on any surface, with any type of paint. The rust resistant, stainless steel ferrule keeps your brushes healthier and stronger for longer, even with prolonged use and spin-drying brushes. The Pro-Brush brushes also feature unvarnished hardwood beavertail handles for the best comfort.
Blue Series Angled Pro-Cutter Paint Brushes
The Pro-Cutter paint brushes from Axus Decor are also made from a mix of synthetic filaments so that the brush has good paint hold but also releases at a good rate, giving you a smooth line. These brushes feature angled filaments for ease of cutting in. Just as the Pro-Brush brushes, the synthetic fibres of the Pro-Cutter can be used with all types of paints and their stainless-steel ferrules prolong the lifecycle of the brush as they won't rust after washing.
Red Series Super Smooth Brushes
The Red Series Super Smooth brushes feature finer synthetic filaments than the Blue Series brushes. They are specially designed to achieve a superiorly smooth finish using that same tapered design to release paint evenly every time. As with all Axus brushes, they are perfect to use with any type of paint you wish and features their rust-resistant, stainless steel ferrule.
What if you’re looking for something a little more eco-friendly?
Grey Series Brushes
Axus also offers something for the eco-conscious decorator looking to manage their carbon-footprint! The Grey Series brushes swap out the natural hardwood handles for bamboo instead. They are still a durable option — especially with Axus’ rust resistant, stainless-steel ferrules — using a more sustainable source of wood. A bamboo grove releases 35% more oxygen into the air and is so fast-growing that it can yield 20 times more timber without the need for harmful fertilizers or pesticides, or even as much water.
Axus design their brushes not only with professional decorators in mind, but as part of the creative process! Continuing to innovate all the time, they are looking to the future to continue to create products that you want and need.
