    Handmade from beech wood, sweep your home in style with this Long-handled Dustpan & Brush set.

    As they have been doing for over a hundred years, the visually impaired have been applying bundles of horsehair by hand to form brushes. This tall brush has a high quality wood oak handle and sits on a matching stand incorporated into the grey dustpan.

    Horse hair is divided into different categories: hair from the tail, which is strong and elastic, and hair from the mane, which is soft but has less elasticity. Horsehair must undergo preparation before it is ready to be used as a material for brushes. The process involves washing, combing, boiling, drying, making into trusses and, usually, dyeing. From one horse, more than half a kilogram of hair per year can be obtained!

    Iris Hantverk

    Beautiful brushes handmade by people with visual impairments.

    Iris Hantverk employs visually impaired craftsmen to make a wonderful range of brushes at its factory in Sweden. Brushes have been made there using many of the same techniques for over 100 years. Their beautiful range of products includes a bench brush, patio broom, bath brush, nail brush and vegetable brush all made from natural materials.

    The brushes feel good to hold and naturally give a steady grip, whether you are scrubbing new potatoes or cleaning your finger nails.

    Iris Hantverk also thinks it is important that the brushes are pleasing to the eye. Top designers are employed to ensure this.

    If you care for your brushes well, they will age beautifully. They are easy to clean with washing up liquid and warm water. Hang them or stand them on the bristles to keep the wood from splitting.
