Body Brush – Firm


Body brush in oak, horse hair plus tampico fiber for extra exfoliating power, used wet or dry. Horse hair is an excellent material in bathing brushes because it is soft and pliable, while it is sturdy and durable and has a certain elasticity. The added Tampico fiber adds stiffness for extra scrub! Along with your chosen soap it gives a soft and comfortable lather to gently washing away all those dead cells!  

The Horsehair Oak Bath Brush is constructed out of hard oak wood with soft horsehair bristles that are hand-wired rather than glued in; the brush is naturally resistant to mould and made to last. Allow the brush to dry hanging or standing on the horsehair so that the water is transported away from the wood that is more sensitive to moisture.

  • Made in Sweden
  • Oil-treated Oak / Horse Hair / Tampico Fiber
  • Firmer bristles
  • L×W×H: 170 × 70 × 40 𝗆𝗆

Leave to dry hanging or with bristles down between use. Occasionally oil the wood with mineral oil. Wood grain can 'raise' after being wet for the first time - a light sandpaper will remove roughness.

﹡For hygienic reasons, we cannot accept returns on personal brushes.

Maker Profile

Iris Hantverk

1870's Stockholm: The birthplace of a brush manufacturing revolution. Now, as then, every brush is made by hand, but what sets Iris Hantverk apart is not just the quality of their goods, but the process behind their creation. Each brush is meticulously crafted by visually impaired craftsmen. This unique approach adds an extra layer of depth and sensitivity to each and every brush, redefining the concept of handmade craftsmanship.

Today there are 17 employees at Iris Hantverk. The core of the business is the brush binding manufacturing at Sandsborgsvägen – here a team of visually impaired craftsmen make brushes according to an old Swedish tradition. They also work with visually impaired craftsmen in Estonia. They too have a history strongly connected to the visual impairments movement.

Join Iris Hantverk on their journey as they continue to create and share their exceptional brushes with the world, keeping tradition alive one brush at a time.
