Brause was founded in 1850 in Iserlohn, Germany, and initially specialised in manufacturing needles. It rapidly developed into a modern company, namely through a steam engine acquired in 1866. The Brause-GmbH web site has been up for a while (in German). Now they have launched a calligraphy site in English, French and German at www.brause-kalligraphie.com.
