Finnish looped dish-wash whisk, rice root
A stiff looped scrubbing whisk made of rice root - the stripped and dried roots of zatacon, a Mexican desert grass. These makes 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.
