The now iconic Concrete Braille Soap Dish from Iris Hantverk combines beautiful, timeless design with the thoughtful social innovation Iris Hantverk has become known for following generations of working with the visually impared to create meaningful, thoughtful objects.

The Soft Concrete that this dish is made from is a unique material; by adding a small amount of polymer it becomes three times as elastic as normal concrete. Soft Concrete is not so soft that it can be bent, it's still a stone material but it has a pleasant feeling to it. It feels warm, soft and comfortable. It contains no environmentally harmful substances. Soft Concrete is cast of a relatively viscous mass that causes the surface to receive a varying smoothness and air bubbles occurs naturally. The irregularity color variations contributes to the vibrant impression.

The braille spells "Soap" in Swedish.

Iris Hantverk

Stockholm, Sweden

In the late 1900s century a small brush manufacturing started out in Stockholm. It was a successful movement so successful that it remains today. Now, as then, every brush is made by hand by visually impaired craftsmen. It brings new dimensions to the concept of sensitively made by hand.Today Iris Hantverk has 14 employees and the core of the business is brush binding manufacturing at Sandsborgsvägen, Enskede – here 5 visually impaired craftsmen from different cultures make brushes according to an old Swedish tradition.
