Iris Hantverk

This week we’ve created new pics for Iris Hantverk and spent a sunny day on location shooting kitchen-, bath- and outdoor products. Here’s some of the items we worked with. The brushes are handmade by sight damaged craftsmen in Stockholm and the textiles knitted in eco certified linen and cotton.

No Plastic VI: The summer(house) gift

During my efforts to reduce the use of plastics at home and at work, I’v become increasingly aware of what a huge problem plastic products are to our environment and ultimately to all life on earth (read former posts on the subject under ”No Plastic”, you’ll find the links to the right on this page). Plastic mania is all around!

When visiting friends and relatives in the countryside I like to bring small, environmental friendly yet stylish products as a gift to my host. Something simple but useful. Something which can replace a similar plastic product.

…like a dishbrush in birch wood and natural fibre, handmade in Stockholm by Iris Hantverk.

…or a clothesline in sisal from Byggfabriken.

klädnypor-650x650 ..with wooden clothes pegs by Grunne.

…perhaps a dishcloth in 100% linen by Växbo Lin? Woven and sewn in Hälsingland in the north part of Sweden.

…and a short handle cotton string turtle bag; the perfect storage solution, when not used for shopping. This one in certified organic cotton, from Turtle Bags.
