About Iris Hantverk
“Today we are 14 employees at Iris Hantverk. The core of the business is the brush binding manufacturing at Sandsborgsvägen, Enskede – here 5 visually impaired craftsmen from different cultures make brushes according to an old Swedish tradition. We also work with visually impaired craftsmen in Estonia. Like us, they too have a history strongly connected to the visual impairments movement.
The brushes are sold in our two shops in Stockholm and all over Sweden and the world through our wholesalers. We continue to supply individual artisans across the country with raw materials. ”
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. You will find our products in our own stores as well as in many other lovely shops around Sweden and worldwide.
