Natural Kitchen Accessories

Today 14 employees work at Iris Hantverk. The core of the business is the brush binding manufacturing at Sandsborgsvägen, Enskede, Sweden – here 5 visually impaired craftsmen from different cultures make brushes according to an old Swedish tradition. They also work with visually impaired craftsmen in Estonia. Like them, they too have a history strongly connected to the visual impairments movement. The brushes are sold in two shops in Stockholm and in an online store but also all over Sweden and the world through their wholesalers. Since August 2012, Richard Sparrenhök and Sara Edhäll run the company. In 2012 the social department withdraw the aid disbursed for depot activities for visually impaired craftsmen. Iris Hantverk’s owner at that time then decided to sell the company to them - both having worked for many years in the company and its management. They were both very glad to take over and operate on this company that holds so much history and tradition. In particular, they appreciate the support visually impaired craftsmen have from De Blindas Väl whose generous contributions have made this website and webshop. They care much for the craftsmen and the survival of the brush binding manufactory. They believe that many like us appreciate the feeling and quality of a hand drawn brush made of natural materials.
