Carpet beater made of rattan. It is used to beat dust off curtains and carpets. Rattan is ideal for this purpose as it is light, flexible but also hard enough. The carpet beater is a handmade piece of art itself.
In the late 1900s century a small brush manufacturing started out in Stockholm. It was a successful movement that remains today. Now, as then, every brush is made by hand by visually impaired craftsmen. It brings new dimensions to the concept of sensitively made by hand. All brushes are of exclusive design and made by hand from natural materials.
Handcrafted in Sweden according to old traditions by visually impaired craftsmen.
HOW TO USE
Simply hang the carpet, bedcover or other textiles somewhere outside and beat it with the carpet beater. Dust and dirt will be pushed out of the carpet and dissolve in air.
Clean with a wet towel after usage.
END OF LIFE
If treated with good care the brush is a very durable product. The fibres are made to last for many years. As it is crafted of all natural products only the brush is biodegradable.
THOUGHTS BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Cleaning is a very mindful and meditative practice. There are many aspects to consider when cleaning. One is using an inspiring product, a product that you would love to clean with. It makes the act of cleaning more pleasant and fulfilling. The products of Iris Hantverk we find beautifully designed. They serve the purpose as a design item as much as the purpose of cleaning your home. The traditional craftsmanship can be felt when touching and using the brushes. Moreover, we are amazed that visually impaired people contribute to crafting these items. To us a carpet beater is a very traditional, mindful tool. It is not an easy task to clean a carpet. Carpet attracts a lot of dust an hair. As we try to avoid using many electric products such as a strong vacuum cleaner, a carpet beater is a lifetime companion to clean textiles such as carpets.
