Earlier this year Iris Hantverk won the Formex Formidable Award for ”best product”. Now the handsome brushes by Lovisa Wattman are in production. And as usual they’re perfectly manufactured by the gifted craftsmen at the Iris Hantverk workshop in Stockholm. Iris Hantverk has a long history of working with visually impaired craftsmen; the 6 craftsmen in Stockholm make brushes according to an old Swedish tradition but the design is contemporary. Every brush is a wonder of aesthetics, function, environmental commitment and splendid craftsmanship.
