What started in 1945 as a small family business has quickly grown to become one of the biggest names in shaving. Otto Johannes Müller started making shaving brushes in 1945 out of a passion for wet shaving and craftsmanship. The company quickly grew into a well-known and recognized brand, delivering its products all around the world. The company is based out of Saxony, Germany and still delivers products around the world today. The Mühle brand has been family owned and operated for three generations. Their entire business is guided by a passion to create a peaceful and enjoyable ritual of wet shaving. Going back to the tradition of wet shaving, their goal is to help create a routine that you look forward to every single day, where you can take your time and really enjoy the process. 

Superior craftsmanship and quality, along with a strong attention to detail, are the guiding factors in every step of their process. This helps Mühle to create some of the highest quality products in the industry. Many of the Mühle products are still handmade and follow traditional processes to retain the level of quality and craftsmanship that they held throughout the years. Even today, their craftsmanship and design hold one of the highest standards in shaving and grooming. 

 

Muhle Production

 

Mühle has expertly combined time-tested traditions with the forward-thinking practice of innovation. They are consistently looking for new ways to improve and innovate, without sacrificing the necessary traditional practices and processes. Guided by a desire to create the very best products, they have progressed throughout the years by using innovative techniques and only the best materials. One example of their innovation was creating their own synthetic fiber shaving brush. When they recognized a need for a truly great synthetic fiber shaving brush, they set out to create their own that matched the standards of quality of some of the best natural shaving brushes. They developed their own unique vegan fibers, Black Fibre and Silvertip Fibre, which set new standards for all synthetic fibers. With incredibly soft tips and a sturdy massaging effect, their synthetic brushes are gentle yet still create the perfect lather.

Not only are they careful to use the best practices and craftsmanship, but they also carefully select only the best materials for their products. Mühle sources their products from some of the best ingredients and raw materials, while also being environmentally conscious. The company's relationship with and respect towards nature is another key aspect of the brand. As part of their mission to be a sustainably conscious company, most of their products are specifically designed to last a lifetime. The level of quality and exquisite craftsmanship creates products that are meant to last, eliminating the need to replace them often. They also operate all products systems with 100% green electricity and are making changes in product packaging and materials to make recycling easier and reduce waste. 

Mühle also has a physical location as well. You can visit the Mühle store in London where you can shop their amazing products. Their shaving store in London also includes a full barbershop where you can go for a traditional wet shave, haircut, shaving tutorial, facial, and more. The barbershop has been named one of the city's best and is a place where anyone can go to learn more about wet shaving and proper grooming practices.
