Finnish bassine (brown) looped whisk
A stiff scrubbing whisk made of bassine a fibre extracted from the rotted down leaves of the palmyra palm. These make excellent pot scrubbers, with a light scouring action, but are also highly effective at removing mud from amongst the tread of winter boots or wellies. Hand bound with flax twine by the visually impaired craftspeople of a Vantaa based Finnish cooperative. Measures between 13cm and 15cm.
