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.
One of the trickiest places to clean is the tops of those ceiling fan blades. No more, with this chic ceiling fan brush, that slips over each blade to keep them looking clean. You can purchase the head without the handle if you already have one from another Andree Jardin design.
Some assembly required. See Care & Notes for details.

Details & Materials -
Goat hair, beech wood, stainless steel wire.
Head is 13.75" L x 12.75" W and the loop fits around a fan blade that is 7" L x 6" W. Handle is 51" L x 1.125" in diameter with a 3" L leather loop for hanging.
Care & Notes -
Spot clean as necessary; hang brush head down when not in use.
As the handle and brush head are not attached, some assembly is required. To assemble, insert the handle (which is not threaded) firmly into the threaded opening on the brush head. When the handle goes no further, apply pressure and twist clockwise. The grooves in the brush head will mold to the handle and create a secure fit.
