Andrée Jardin

This dishwashing gift box set with copper cleaning ball is a neat, stylish and incredibly useful set. It contains a beechwood dishwashing brush with replaceable brush head, a copper ball for scrubbing pans, a handy dishcloth and lovely soft pebble sponge. 

Copper is prized as a cleaning scrub, because it cleans without scratching and brings out a fantastic sparkle on pots and pans. Copper works on stainless steel, ceramic and glass.

The set makes a great gift for anyone looking for plastic-free alternatives in the home and kitchen.  Wooden Box measures 30cm x 14cm x 7cm

Andrée Jardin brushes are all made with locally sourced beech and heat-treated ash from sustainably managed forests. The bristles are largely made of natural materials – mainly white hog bristle, horsehair or plant fibres. Everything is produced in small batches, using artisanal techniques learned from founder Georges-René Julio, who started his career in brush-making 100 years ago in Nantes.

Profile

A century ago, Andrée Jardin’s future husband, Georges Renée Julio, started out as an apprentice brush maker in Nantes. For 60 years, Jardin has been making beautiful wood brushes in Brittany, France. Andrée Jardin and her husband,  opened up their factory in 1947, and they’ve since maintained their sense of traditional beauty while incorporating modern design touches. With the arrival of plastic and the beginning of globalisation, what used to be called "Parisian goods" started to lose their value to such a point that today it is still difficult to find an authentic broom, hand brush, or, even more, a real dust brush. Determined to refute this sad state of affairs, Jean-Baptiste and François-Marie, Andrée’s grandchildren, reissued the mythical brushes with French beechwood frames. Their brooms, brushes, and dusters are some of the only high-quality options made in a traditional way. Real brushes that last!
