This wooden dish brush is fully biodegradable and made from vegan and sustainable materials. Dish brushes with plastic bristles can shed micro plastics that can end up in the ocean, so the bristles on this brush are plant-based and 100% biodegradable Tampico fibre bristles. Tampico is a very robust fibre from the yellow leaf of the agave cactus, which grows only in the highlands of northern Mexico. Tampico has great water-retaining properties, is resistant and hard-wearing, and keeps its shape without softening.
Handmade in Germany by a small family company, that has been making brushes for decades. The handle is made from locally grown beech wood.
