  • Description

    Its hard to think of a more practical and stylish product than this hand brush.  The brush is made from a type of sorghum known as rice straw which is thin, stiff and strong, making it ideal for small brushes.  And the distinctive curved handle makes it easy to single handedly sweep awkward spaces like a tent, fireplace or cupboard.

    This style of brush originates from the Netherlands and hence its colloquial name of Dutch brush.  However, in parts of New England which were colonised by the Dutch, the brush has taken on the more characterful name of ‘turkey wing whisk broom’ as its shape and size is similar to that of a turkey wing.

    The straw bristles are neatly bound together by blue twine which has a loop for hanging.

    Gernot Redecker

    Gernot Redecker

    Brush and broom maker in northern Germany

    Friedrich Redecker was born in northern Germany in 1908 and started going blind from the age of four.  In those days making brushes was the standard trade for the blind, so that is what Friedrich set about doing.  Only he was more successful than most and built a small brush and broom making business that supported his family and continued until his death at the age of 71.

    After Friedrich’s death his youngest son Gernot took on the responsibility for winding down the business, but instead of bringing the business to a close discovered there was such high demand for the brushes at local fairs that he decided to expand.

    Several decades later Fredrich’s son Felix has now joined the business and the range of brushes and brooms has expanded considerably.  As well as having a reputation for very high quality products, the family is also famous for its innovation, which happens at their dedicated ideas workshop. Their focus is on blending modern contemporary design with traditional materials and crafts.
