Posted: Jan 28 2016


Based in Sweden, Iris Hantverk have been hand making household brushes for over 100 years, primarily employing partially sighted people, the company began in 1906 and has been producing high quality brushes ever since.

Iris Hantverk's brushes are all unique designs to them and they aim to work with almost all natural materials, including coconut fibre, goat and horse hair and cereal root - each material has it's own unique set of properties. The brushes are all designed to be long lasting and if looked after properly will age beautifully, brushes should be washed from time to time in warm, soapy water and dried with the bristles facing down, the wooden parts should be oiled occasionally with an oil such as linseed.
