hand crafted by the visually impaired
In the late 1900s century a small brush manufacturing started out in Stockholm. It was such a successful movement that it 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 mostly from natural materials.
