Design of brushes, brooms and dustpans

A product family of brushes, brooms and dustpans made by the Finnish company Sokeva, which employs the blind and visually impaired.

The main feature of the products is the three-point mounting (most similar products have a single-point mounting). This significantly contributes to the strength and thus extends the product’s lifespan. At the same time, the three-point support provides an insight into the structure of the product and handcraftsmaship of these brushes.
