Collection: Iris Hantverk

Founded in Stockholm in 1870, Iris Hantverk started as a collective of visually impaired craftsmen who excelled at making traditional, natural fiber brushes. When the company lost government funding in 2012, two employees – Richard Sparrenhök and Sara Edhäll – mortgaged their houses to buy the business and prevent production from moving to China. A group of visually impaired craftsman in Estonia joined the team, allowing Iris Hantverk to continue its production of handmade goods that require careful concentration and a deft touch.
