Vegetable brush in birch and union mixture.

Union mixture is strong and water resistant. This is a superb brush for scrubbing potatoes and root vegetables.
Since the late 1800s, Iris Hantverk has been manufacturing household brushes in Stockholm. Each brush is an exclusive design and made from natural materials. Today, 11 employees and six visually impaired craftsmen remain, keeping old Swedish traditions alive. The company name ‘Iris’ refers to the flat and ring-shaped membrane of the eye. Each brush is handmade by a visually impaired craftsman, bringing a whole new meaning to the term handcrafted.
Caring for me
The brush is cleaned by dipping in hot water with mild detergent. After use, shake out excess water from the brush and hang to dry, or dry standing on the fibre so that the water is transported away from the wood. Never soak the wooden handle; the handle may also be oiled occasionally.
