Oak Nail Brush

Iris Hantverk

$ 15.00

A handy, small, double-sided nail brush for use at home or in your toiletry bag when traveling.  The fiber used to create this brush is elastic and waterproof with a certain stiffness that isn't too hard- the  perfect material for cleaning the hands and nails. The shorter stiffer bristles on the top effectively remove the tougher to reach dirt under the nail while the longer bristles are good for all-over use. 

Materials:  Tampoco fiber and oil-treated oak

Dimensions:  Small is 2.5" x 1.5" / Large is 4" x 1.5" 

Care: Wash 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.
