Best Answer

As a small time brush manufacturer i have done a lot of research on this subject and i have found that a majority of the brushes where made from regionally collected materials.

Pigs bladder or rabbit hide tied with animal connective tissue or waxed thread often constructed the ferrules.

Handles very from artist to artist.

Bristles also very greatly but mostly horse or some kind of other non woolly hair.
