Shopping for Home and Body: Iris Hantverk: How to Brush With Style
While at Liberty's bath shop in London we came across this line of brushes for cleaning and bath purposes. They were so appealing that we were delighted to find one of our favorite shopping sites, Fjorn, also carries them. We looked further and found Iris Handverk listed at other sites in the US, too, but found the duck crowning bath brush we had purchased at the Iris Hantverk site itself. Although we don't have infant grandchildren any longer, it's an extremely appealing item and perfect for those Holiday and birthday gifts that nowadays should be practical as well as good looking. However, Iris Hantverk products are not inexpensive but natural fiber and fine woods products rarely are.
We looked further and found the Iris Hantverk site in Sweden:
"Iris Hantverk is a part of the Iris Group owned by Synskadades Stiftelse and has close ties with the the visually impaired. Within the group, business benefits are combined with benefits to society. Brushes are made at Iris Hantverk, which enjoys successful sales. Our production facility employs visually impaired craftsmen from a range of cultures."
A downloadable pdf file lists the Iris Hantverk products and details about their construction and care, but the site's English section lists all those products, too, as well as a page on the designers of the brushes.Read More...
