Light as a feather.

For 60 years, Andree Jardin has been making beautiful wood brushes in Brittany, France. Jardin’s husband, George-René Julio, was an apprentice to a brush-maker in Nantes and with his know-how, the pair opened up their factory in 1947. With the advent of plastic, traditional brush-making techniques fell by the wayside, so these brooms and dusters are some of the only high-quality options made in the old-school way—using horsehair and silk bristles, and sturdy wood handles. We love that they’ve maintained their traditional beauty while incorporating modern, whimsical design touches. 

The tres chic way to clean: a classic French feather duster! Run the lush ostrich feathers over glassware, window sills, and baseboards for a quick dust up, and hang the duster on the wall for all to see when you’re done. You can purchase the head without the handle if you already have one from another Andree Jardin design.Some assembly required.
