Only with the help of this essential piece of kit a good shaving brush and a good shaving soap or cream supplement each other properly and work up a fine and creamy foam – a foam that gives a deep and lasting shave that is also kind to the skin.
Shaving Utensils and Facial Care by Mühle.
In a company that is still family run today the craftsmanship handed down has provided a bridge to the development of new materials, manufacturing procedures and contemporary design. The manufacturing of shaving brushes is still at the core of the company, besides it, Mühle has introduced products for wet shaving and facial care in their program.
A question of care.
A perfect shave starts before the razor touches your face, with thorough and careful facial care. A preparatory cleansing with a mild gel and the "aftercare" with shaving balm or face cream accompany the actual shave. The care product series called "Organic" by Mühle is made from plant-derived ingredients and meets natural and organic cosmetics criteria. All care products contain the precious argan oil which protects the skin with its high vitamin E content and essential fatty acids and nutrients. Mühle receives its argan oil in fair trade from a Moroccan women’s cooperative. The women extract the oil by a traditional technique: with hand pressing. The oil, in combination with more plant based extracts and ingredients, supplies the skin with sufficient moisture and lipids to stay elastic and smooth. The Mühle Organic care products are certified by a German non-profit organisation, the BDIH (Bundesverband Deutscher Industrie- und Handelsunternehmen für Arzneimittel, Reformwaren, Nahrungsergänzungsmittel und Körperpflegemittel, i.e. Federal Association of German Industries and Trading Firms for Pharmaceutical Products, Health Care Products, Food Supplements and Personal Hygiene Products) qualifying them as Certified Natural Cosmetics.
Shaving Brush and Straight Razor by Mühle.
While not every craft business succeeds in balancing tradition and modernity, the Mühle shaving brush manufactory does: The still family-run company has preserved the traditional knowledge of the craft while welcoming new materials, manufacturing methods and contemporary designs. The manufactory in the Ore Mountains produces articles, 90% handmade, for wet shaving. The heart of the company is up to the present day the manufacturing of the shaving brush. The brush makers need a sure touch, a steady hand and a good eye to work with the fine badger hair. In the first step, they carefully sort the hair, weigh the fibres out to the tenth of a gram and then tap them into shape in a box. Then they take the 20,000 or so hairs with great care out of the moulding box and, without a single hair slipping out of place, tie them firmly into a tassel called loft. When they have finished the form of the loft, they glue and mount it on the handle of the shaving brush. They manufacture all brushes with extreme care, whether made of badger hair or special synthetic fibres; we offer both hair and fibres in a range of different qualities. Mühle produces the shaving brushes and razors in full at the company’s headquarters in Hundshübel. Parts are sourced as far as possible from the region.
From the Erzgebirge to all over the world. From a family business to a global brand.
Otto Johannes Müller manufactures the first shaving brush in his laundry room and thus lays, directly after the last world war the foundation of the company Mühle. The skilled brush and paintbrush maker also manufactures brushes and paintbrushes and other items of daily use, which were in short supply at the time, and at the same time begins to export his products all over the world with Mühle on them. Barely 20 years later, Mühle maintains trade relations in 36 countries, throughout Europe, but also in South America and even in the Orient, Mühle shaving brushes now provide the fine-pored shaving foam on the skin. Like many other private companies in the GDR, Mühle cannot escape nationalization, but founder son Hans Jürgen Müller seizes the opportunity to reprivatize immediately after the fall of the Wall - a real new beginning, as it soon turns out, because hardly any of the former customers and employees remain. Like his grandfather and father before him, and son Christian after him, Hans Jürgen still learned the brush maker's trade, which was threatened with extinction, so that he now has to - and indeed can - put the family knowledge to full use again. He modernizes the production and in the course of the following years expands the product range to include shaving razors, bowls and everything else that the morning ritual of wet shaving requires. The Mühle collection in the historic barber shop next to the manufactory, which presents the history of shaving and the company in equal measure with museum utensils, demonstrates the close ties to tradition that still exist today. Today, the scepter is in the hands of the third generation. Andreas and Christian Müller have continuously expanded the vertical range of manufacture at the company's headquarters, so that shaving brushes and planes are now once again produced here on a fully integrated basis. Whenever possible, Mühle obtains its supplies from regional producers. A consistent continuation of this ecological and resource-saving production is also the development of a care series that meets the requirements of natural cosmetics.
