Shaving Cup | By Iris Hantverk
The core of IRIS HANTVERK'S business is the brush binding manufacturing at Sandsborgsvägen, Enskede where 5 visually impaired craftsmen from different cultures make brushes according to an old Swedish tradition. Iris Hantverk also works with visually impaired craftsmen in Estonia where, like Sweden, they too have a history strongly connected to the visual impairments movement. This brings new dimensions to the concept of sensitively made by hand. All brushes are of exclusive design and made almost completely from natural materials.
Shaving cup in soft concrete with shaving soap. Soft Concrete is a unique material, by adding a small addition of polymer (plastic) it becomes three times as elastic as normal concrete. Soft Concrete is not so soft that it can be bent, it's still a stone material but it has a pleasant feeling to it. It feels warm, soft and comfortable. It contains no environmentally harmful substances. Soft Concrete is cast of a relatively viscous mass that causes the surface to receive a varying smoothness and air bubbles occurs naturally. The irregularity color variations contributes to the vibrant impression.
