Ash handle, tampico and bassine natural bristles. Made in Sweden.
Most fresh mushrooms absorb liquid rapidly which is why it is best not to soak them in liquid or clean them under running water. A good brush will remove soil and most forest debris without damaging the mushroom in the effort. The design of our Swedish brush is ideal for cleaning mushrooms due to its long and narrow shape which helps get into all of the fungi’s nooks and crannies. These brushes make a wonderful gift on their own and enhanced when presented with a bag of dehydrated exotic mushrooms.
Did you know…These brushes are handmade by visually impaired craftsmen in a small binding factory near Stockholm, Sweden using the same technique as when the company first opened in the late 19th century. The brushes are made from natural material including bristles made of tampico (fibers from the Agave plant) and bassine (fibers from the Sago palm), bound by natural fibers and attached to an ash handle.
