iris soap dish, oval
Iris Hantverk work with visually impaired craftsmen, who attach each individual bundle of bristles to the base of the brush with their steady hands, just like they used to in the 19th century.
This soap dish is made of soft concrete. Soft Concrete is a unique material, by adding a small addition of polymer (plastic) it becomes three times as elastic as normal concrete, allowing it to be shaped.

BRUSHES THAT GIVE "HAND-MADE" A NEW MEANING
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.
All brushes are of exclusive design and made mostly from natural materials and accordingly to an old Swedish tradition.
