Finnish arenga (black) whisk
A medium stiff scrubbing whisk, or small hand brooms made of black arenga fibre harvested without felling from the trunks of sugar palms. Slightly softer than the other small whisk brushes these make excellent general washing up and vegetable scrubbers, as well as small stiff brooms for brushing dried mud from shoes, clothes, or fabrics. Hand bound with flax twine by the visually impaired craftspeople of a Vantaa based Finnish cooperative. Measures between 13cm and 15cm.
