    General Information

    Fine foam and gentle massage

    This wooden bath brush is bristled with strong horsehair, making it an environmentally friendly plastic alternative, but above all the natural bristles combined with a good soap produce a particularly soft lather - even when showering. You have a choice of sizes: the small version is also ideal for traveling thanks to its compact dimensions. The large bath brush with its ergonomically shaped handle fits particularly well in the hand. Its outward-facing bristles also ensure a wide application area. We recommend leaving the bath brush hanging or standing on the bristles to dry so that moisture is wicked away from the wood.

    Genuine Handicraft Makes a Tangible Difference. Brushes by Iris Hantverk.

    Brush making has traditionally been a line of work for people with visual impairments. This is why the Swedish Association for the Blind founded a company for making and selling brushes at the beginning of the 20th century: Iris Hantverk. In this tradition, craftspersons with visual impairments in Sweden and Estonia assemble the brushes entirely by hand for Iris Hantverk to this day. The techniques are the same as back then: With the help of a small hook attached to their finger, they feed a stainless steel wire through holes in the wooden brush base and form it into loops. Then they gather the bristles into small bundles, insert them into the loops and fasten them with the wire. Finally, they cut the bristles to the right length using a cutting machine. From start to finish, they follow the haptics of tools and materials with great skill and their well-trained sense of touch. The work process is still visible in the finished product. When you look at the back of these brushes, the course of the wire is usually visual and gives tangible evidence of the Swedish craftiness.
