Washing Up Whisk
Traditional Swedish craftsmanship is at the heart of Iris Hantverk. With more than a century of brushmaking experience, the Stockholm-based company is known for exclusive designs such as this scrubby kitchen tool that is ideal for cleaning pots and pans. It is made by hand of bundled rice root (also known as broom root): a taut, elastic, and water-resistant material derived from the zacaton plant, which grows on the high plateaus of Mexico. Immerse in boiling water for a few minutes before first use to get a tough and resilient brush.
