Iris Hantverk Brushes

Iris Hantverk Brushes

We are very excited to have finally received our order of Iris Handverk brushes. These beautiful brushes are handmade in Sweden from local wood and all natural fibers. Traditionally, in Europe,  visually impaired craftsmen and women would make brooms and brushes by hand. Iris Handverk has continued this craft, designing brushes each with their own individual function.

These are the most comfortable, effective brushes we have ever used, and the fact that they are part of a centuries old tradition only makes them more desirable. The type of wood used for the handle and the natural fibers used for the bristles are chosen based on the designated purpose of each brush, so you can be sure that you are getting the best possible tool for your specific job.

Hamam Towels

We have just received a beautiful range of hand loomed Hamam Towels. These are the towels traditionally used in Turkish Baths such as the Çemberlitaş Hamam in Istanbul. They are still woven in the traditional manner on a metiers a tisser, or hand loom.

Our Hamam towels are 100% cotton and become even softer and more absorbent after they have been washed. They are also the perfect size for a lightweight throw, tablecloth or shawl.

Renovation is over!

We have been closed the last few days so that we could renovate the store. We added a central monolith and some more shelves. Now we are open again, so come by to check out the improvements. Here are some photos of the facelift.
