Basting and Barbecue Brush
A handy basting brush with a long handle, angled brush, and hole for convenient hanging. Horse hair bristles are resilient, while simultaneously making for easy clean-up.
Materials: Horse hair with birch wood handle
Dimensions: 14" long
Care: Wash the brush by hand with mild dish soap and warm water. Hang the brush or stand it on the bristles to dry. Oil the handle from time to time to keep the wood from drying out. If you care for your brushes well, they will age beautifully.
Maker: At Iris Hantverk, people with visual impairments have been making brushes using the time-honored techniques of traditional Swedish craftsmanship for more than a hundred years. We still draw every brush by hand and use natural materials almost exclusively. Backs and handles are made of birch, oak or beech. The bristles are made of various materials such as horsehair, goat hair Tampico fiber (from plants unique to the semi-desert areas of northern Mexico) and piassava (bass) fiber, depending on their use.
