Never has scrubbing floors seemed so attractive. Swedish company Iris Hantverk's handcrafted products for the bath and home rely mostly on traditional materials such as horsehair, oak, and birch, and the production facility employs visually impaired craftsmen from a range of cultures. If you cannot quite swing a visit to the stores in Stockholm or Malmo, find the goods online at iris.se; select items are also available through Hen and Hammock in the UK.
