Their mission to revive traditional Swedish brush binding is apparent in the quality of each hand drawn brush.
How to care for:
Brushes with natural fibers can last years if properly cared for. Here are a few tips to follow:
-never let your brushes soak in water, its hard on the wood and will create cracks and splits
-the bristles should always be faced down while drying so they maintain their shape and don’t drain the water into the wood handle
-an earth friendly soap can be used to deep clean bristles
-if you notice the wood handle drying out, use a wood conditioner such a bee’s oil or cutting board friendly conditioner to oil the wood
