About Iris Hantverk
In the late 1800s, a small brush manufacturing business started out in Stockholm. It was 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.
The Iris Hantverk design has evolved through the years but the craftsmen still use the same time honoured techniques that have been in use for over a hundred years. The brushes are made by hand in mostly natural materials. The core of the business is the brush binding manufacturing at Sandsborgsvägen, Enskede where 6 visually impaired craftsmen make brushes according to an old Swedish tradition. Today Iris Hantverk employs 17 people.
Using natural materials is a matter of course because it is environmentally sustainable, beautiful and functional » IRIS HANTVERK
