Why Choose Purdy?

Since Purdy's beginnings in a small garage in Portland, Oregon in 1925, the art of making premium painting tools has always been at the heart of the Purdy success story. Purdy remains committed to creating the best painting experience.

Our Commitment to Quality

Moreover, our brushes are created by hand, personally and individually. Every brush you buy has a sticker with the initials of the person who made it. No other paint brush manufacturer can say that.

For over 80 years, 100% of our brushes have been handcrafted by skilled Purdy brushmakers. Many of Purdy's brushmakers have more than three decades of experience, taking the finest raw materials and turning them into the finest brushes available and products of uncompromising quality!

Each Purdy® professional brush is an individually built tool, designed, formulated, blended and hand-crafted for maximum painting performance.
