By Iris Hantverk
A refined addition to any bathroom, the Toilet Brush with Cup from Iris Hantverk is made in Sweden from soft concrete, birch and synthetic bristles.
Soft Concrete is a unique material, by adding a small addition 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.
You take care of the brush in the same way as an ordinary toilet brush.
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.
