It’s hard to tell from its look and feel, but this brush handle is made from 100% post consumer recycled Styrofoam! It’s very important to us to decrease our environmental impact and find ways to repurpose materials that would otherwise end up in the landfill or our oceans. Brad began working with Styrofoam back in 2012 (read more about the humble beginnings of this project here) and has perfected his technique, resulting in brush handles with a beautiful, stone like weight and finish.
One of the main reasons we started The Copper Hat was to provide people with waste-free solutions to shaving. We spend some of our free time cleaning garbage from our local beaches and enjoy volunteering with the Surfrider Foundation, to do group beach cleanups around Southern Vancouver Island. We are happy to donate $10 from the purchase of this brush to Surfrider to help support them in supporting our oceans.
This brush is set with extremely soft synthetic bristles. Although it’s not quite as water absorbent as badger hair, synthetic bristles are vegan and great for those with sensitive skin.
This one of a kind brush was skillfully turned and set by Brad, the owner of The Copper Hat, at his workshop nestled between a brewery and honey dispensary, in Victoria, BC. Brad never uses patterns, just his imagination, so every brush is unique. Your Copper Hat shaving brush will be accompanied by an identification card indicating the hair type, handle material and any other interesting notes about its story.
This brush comes with a tin of our own Copper Hat All-Natural Shave Soap. This soap creates a thick and moisturizing lather while protecting the skin. It is available in several scents that you can choose from. Please note the soap scent you’d like in your order comments.
Thank you for supporting small, local business!
