This beautiful concrete collection is Made in Sweden by Iris Hantwerk. The objects are simple, modern and exquisitely formed. It is inspiring that these beautiful handmade items are created by visually impaired craftspeople. “This concrete shaving kit includes a shaving dish made from soft concrete, shaving soap, and a traditional beech brush with badger hair bristles. Iris Hantwerk employs visually impaired craftspeople to create beautiful handmade brushes. Each individual bundle of bristles are bound to hardwood handles just like they were made in the 19th century. The soft concrete dish reads “soap” in braille. It really brings new meaning to the term “hand made”.
