Wash With Colour

IMG_8400

I'm not much of a dishcloth buying person, especially not very costly cloths for cleaning purposes only. Hence I have no idea how good or worth the money (60 SEK) these particular cloths are. But every time I pass them in craft shops the idea that they'd make nice gifts - of course in pair with something else because I wouldn't want to imply that the gift receiver could do a better job at cleaning - swirls intensely.

They come off like sturdy, eco-friendly, colourful niceties (26 colours available!) that makes cleaning a dash bit funnier. I might be wrong regarding the eco bit, since cotton most often sadly isn't as natural and environmental friendly as one was brought up to think...

But the Swedish company, Iris Hantverk (Handicrafts), behind the design seems like an interesting one. They design, make - handmade by visually impaired - and sell lovely crafts in their main shops in Stockholm - shops that scream spend, spend, spend when you look at the window displays... - as well as abroad.

I like the colors, and it would make for an interesting choice as to which one to use each day.Good post!

You do that, afos, I also think they might be found in some shops in other countries, I have seen Iris-crafts when on holidays abroad.
