Handcrafted Zebrawood Shave Brush

Recently, we sold this shave brush(and shave soaps) to a very special daughter to send to her dad in Greece. Now, it's always a cool thing to send something over seas-thinking about the voyage your handcrafted item will make is something I think is really neat, but the even sweeter part is the palpable love this daughter has for her father.

I love that this brush traveled over land and sea to a father in expression of a daughter's love. Upon it's arrival, I received a sweet note from the daughter- the following is an excerpt:

"I am very happy to tell you that my father holds my present in his hands, and he is so very happy with it.Thanks so much Michele, my parents say the soaps are wonderful." (this totally made me smile :-)

This to me is really the best reward and reason for putting such care into handcrafting whatever it may be-the pleasure and happiness your item brings others. There is NO substitution for handmade, and there is nothing more satisfying than knowing someone appreciates the love that goes into all you do. This satisfaction is the essence of why we create.
