The products that you are inspecting by Bristlebrush Designs are made from the Buri Palm Tree, also known as the Corpha Elata, the other items used on some products are Corn Husk and Abaca.

All fibres are separated and first bleached in a solutions of 93% clean water, 5% Hydrogen Poroxide and 2% Sodium Silicate for a period of 8 hours at 100 degrees celcius. The fibre is then kiln dried at 85 degrees celsius for 8 hours to ensure there are no live insects or contaminants. Any small wooden components are soaked in wood preservative chemical for 8 hours and then also kiln dried for 8 hours.

Once the products are manufactured they are treated by fumigation for 24 hours at 21 degrees celsius and (NAP) 48g/m3 in a sealed room using Methyl Bromide (T9047). As an extra precaution they are also dry heat treated. (T9569) for 8 hours at 85 degrees celcius.
