Swedish Long-Handle Broom & Dust Pan Set - Seven Color Variants
- The Maker
At Iris Hantverk, people with visual impairments have been making brushes using the time-honored techniques of traditional Swedish craftsmanship for more than a hundred years. We still draw every brush by hand and use natural materials almost exclusively. Backs and handles are made of birch, oak or beech. The bristles are made of various materials such as horsehair, goat hair Tampico fiber (from plants unique to the semi-desert areas of northern Mexico) and piassava (bass) fiber, depending on their use.
Our designs have emerged gradually through the years. The brushes feel good in the hand and naturally give a steady grip, whether you are scrubbing new potatoes or cleaning a mixing bowl sticky with bread dough. We also think it is important that the brushes are pleasing to the eye. Utensils that are used every day should add a bit of simple pleasure in the kitchen and by the sink.
If you care for your brushes well, they will age beautifully. They are easy to clean with dishwashing liquid and warm water. Hang them or stand them on the bristles to dry to keep the wood from splitting. Oil as needed with mineral oil.
Stylish and practical dustpan and brush set. The brush is handmade with bristles of horse hair. The wooden parts are made of beech that has been treated with linseed oil and the shovel is made of plastic. The natural bristles effectively sweep up crumbs and gravel etc.
The best way to clean the brush is to remove the dust from the brush with your hand or to use an old hairbrush. If the bristles have lost their shape, you can wet them in lukewarm water and reshape whilst damp. Hang the brush to dry. Clean the shovel with a damp cloth.
