What is Brass?
From Doorknobs to statues and even instruments, brass is a common material with a rich history. Similar to bronze with a gold-like appearance, bronze is an alloy containing copper and zinc. Examples of brass being in use range back to pre-history!
Brass is a unique material that combines opulence, versatility and economics in a healthy balance that makes it a perfect material to work within many industries. Brass is malleable, beautiful and even antimicrobial. Brass has been a favoured building material of cultures across the globe for centuries.
One of the most significant aspects of brass is its durability and effortless shine. Brass's workability has led to everyday use in furniture throughout the decades, which has luckily survived due to the natural strength and appearance of the material.
