For 60 years, Andree Jardin has been making beautiful wood brushes in Brittany, France. Jardin’s husband, George-René Julio, was an apprentice to a brush-maker in Nantes and with his know-how, the pair opened up their factory in 1947. With the advent of plastic, traditional brush-making techniques fell by the wayside, so these brooms and dusters are some of the only high-quality options made in the old-school way—using horsehair and silk bristles, and sturdy wood handles. We love that they’ve maintained their traditional beauty while incorporating modern, whimsical design touches.
Get into those hard-to-reach places with a handsome French bottle brush. The set includes a flute brush to get into long, skinny champagne glasses and a carafe brush that blossoms at the base so it makes quick work of filmy insides.
