This Swedish dishcloth, called "household cloth" due to its common usage in Sweden dating back to the 1950's, is made from natural cellulose and cotton fibre.  The lovely airy floral print in blue and beige is reminiscent of a type of native goldenrod growing in my garden or a lovely floral head of a Queen Anne's Lace. 

This extremely environmentally friendly household cloth can be used for up to 200 times and replaces the everyday usage of paper towels.  It can absorb 20x its weight in liquid so it is very effective for cleaning big spills.   It can be either boiled or machine washed and then hung dry regularly.  Once it starts to deteriorate it is suitable for adding to the compost.

Meet the Makers 

In the late 1900s century a small brush manufacturing started out in Stockholm with a mission to give "hand-made" a new meaning. 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.

The vision that drives Iris Hantverk is to revive the traditional brush binding profession by making functional products with good design combined with the quality of natural materials and the craftsmen's solid technique.

All Iris Hantverk brushes are of exclusive design and made mostly from natural materials.  They believe that many people appreciate the feeling and quality of a hand drawn brush made of natural materials and will find value in the survival of the brush binding manufacturing.
