Iris Hantverk

Iris Hantverk

Iris Hantverk is a Swedish company that makes beautiful, traditional household tools and accessories, specializing in brushes and brooms. In addition to utilizing the production techniques the company started with toward the end of the 1800s, Iris Hantverk employs visually impaired craftspeople to assemble their brushes.

The construction process for brushes consists of each bundle of bristles being painstakingly hand-attached to a wooden handle, with precision and quality being paramount, just as they were for the company over 100 years ago.

The handmade brushes are made of almost entirely natural components: from the wooden handles, to bristles of horsehair, goat hair, Tampico (a cactus fiber unique to northern Mexico), or Piassava (also referred to as “African Bass”), depending on the brush’s intended use.

Also worthy of note are Hantverk’s knitted flax towels, as well as their minimal, concrete soap dishes.

Iris Hantverk has two stores in Stockholm; A large selection of their products can be purchased online at Fjorn Scandinavian.
