Finnish sink brush
A small long bristled ‘moustachioed’ sink brush of boreal birch and tampico fibre hand-stitched by the crafts people of a Finnish visually impaired workers cooperative. Tampico is a moderately stiff vegetable fibre harvested from an agave found only in the Chihuahuan desert. The fibres have a microscopically barbed surface, which helps hold water for more effective cleaning, and lends them a gentle polishing action. Soak the bristles in brine and dry before use for an extended life. About 30cm overall length.
