Lovisa Wattman Concrete Shaving Kit

I don’t like shaving like the next guy but as with most things in life, you know, not being able to drink as much as I could, standing at the back-or even worse: backstage- at rock shows, and so, it’s one of the things I have accepted with getting older. When it comes to shaving, I’m a traditionalist, and hence this concrete shaving kit made in Sweden really appeals to me. The concrete shaving kit includes a shaving dish made from soft concrete, shaving soap, and a traditional beech brush with badger hair bristles. Iris Hantwerk employs visually impaired craftspeople to create beautiful handmade brushes. Each individual bundle of bristles are bound to hardwood handles just like they were made in the 19th century.
