Chungking Bristles (from hogs raised in the region of the Chinese city of Chungking) are considered the best for oil painting, having long, deep flags. Theoretically, the longer the flags, the better the bristle. Used mainly for oil, acrylic, and hobby ceramics. Interlocked ‘curved’ heads allow retention of shape. These superior-quality bristles are less likely to ‘splay’ or spread.

The Series 2015 Short Flats allow a much sturdier brush with a more robust "snap," creating sharper edges and control than, for example, a synthetic brush. It's ideal for blocking in and impasto. The short flats, also known as 'brights,' are popular for Plein-Air (outdoor) painters who want a grain or texture to their brush strokes.
