Finnish long handled sauna/bath brush
Longer handled body brushes made with boreal birch stocks soaked in pine tar as a protective and preservative, and hand stitched with either softer black horsehair or slightly stiffer light horse hair blend bristles by the crafts people of a Finnish visually impaired workers cooperative. Used more or less vigorously either during bathing or saunas to gently stimulate, clean, and exfoliate the skin. Best rinsed and left to dry between uses as if left soaking natural materials will degrade. 37cm overall length with a head of approximately 13cm.
