Being a watercolor instructor, I kept searching for brush rolls for my students with no success. I wanted a beautiful roll that is airy, looks like a piece of art, holds at least 25 various size brushes and protects them unlike any other brush roll. After working on the design for a long time, I came up with these. My students loved them and suggested that instead of giving them away I should sell them. :)
Each brush roll is unique and made to last. The bamboo backing adds stability and rigidity while allowing air circulation. Beautiful batik fabrics were carefully selected to make each roll like a little piece of art; after all you are an artist and want something pleasing to your artistic senses. Pretty beads at the end of the ties add a special touch and harmonize with the fabrics. The roll measures approximately 12x18" or 30x45cm and may not hold oil painting brushes which are typically longer.
If you would like a different color combination than the listed ones, please let me know which one appeals to you the most and I will make a roll in those colors for you.
Also if you would like a completely custom made brush roll, please contact me to discuss your options. Thank you.
There is just one problem...I don’t have enough brushes to get another!
Now, when I go to choose a brush, it feels like I am reaching into a treasure chest, that I have already started my painting. You can tell that this is a labor of love and I feel honored to own this beautiful roll. Besides, Renata, from my conversations with her, is terribly sweet! Thank you.

I love my custom-made brush roll! Renata was wonderful to work with, making suggestions I wouldn't have thought of. She is speedy, and so was shipping--I got my brush roll before I even thought of expecting it.
The brush roll itself is beautifully crafted, sturdy but not weighty. I leave my brushes in it when I'm not using them, and just roll it up for the road.
Great product. Great seller and fellow artist.
