Vintage-Inspired French Table Crumber Set
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.
Make every night feel like a refined dinner party with a vintage-inspired french crumber set. Use the handsome wood-handled brush to sweep errant crumbs into the lacquered dustpan (in 6 colors!)—guests will think they’re dining at a 5-star Parisian restaurant.
