Rosa Harradine Tampico Brush

Size: One Size

West Wales-based maker Rosa Harradine creates brushes from natural fibres in her garden workshop in Carmarthen. The bristles are made from tampico fibres, which are wrapped with hemp cord and finished with a cotton strap, making them completely biodegradable. 

The process involves keeping the hemp thread constantly under tension, wrapped around a rolling pin underneath her feet to make the handles tight and strong. Due to being handmade, each varies slightly in colour and shape.

This item is part of our New Makers programme. In its fourth year running, five makers demonstrating excellence in skill, originality and craftsmanship have been chosen by a TOAST panel. We will offer business and marketing advice, as well as a platform to sell their pieces until the end of this year, with full profits being returned to them.
