|In 1853, Hiram Hutchinson, who would later start his eponymous rubber company, famous for their high quality bicycle tires, established Aigle Boots, the first American company to manufacture in Europe. Handcrafted in France for over 150 years, and made with 100% natural rubber, these boots are perfect for any weather. We have just received two styles of their classic sailing boot, the Malouine and the Glenan Botillon.|

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.
