Where Have All the Kolinsky Sable Brushes Gone?

As many of my students know I stopped using sable brushes long ago.  I began to question how the sable hair was acquired and never received a satisfactory answer.   I became uncomfortable with the product.  I found the new synthetic watercolor brushes to handle beautifully so I happily stopped purchasing any animal hair brushes of any sort.

Below is a great link about he fur trade and Kolinsky Sable brushes….why they are getting hard to find and why we should consider alternative brushes that give a wonderful effect without effecting wildlife. :O)
