  • Care instructions

    Unpolished brass will become darker over time from exposure to air. This change can be beautiful. If the surface is affected by water, grease such as fingerprints or by other corroding substances, it can eventually be damaged and more difficult to polish away. This can happen especially in a humid environment.

    Clean the surface with a soft cloth. For a deeper cleaning we recommend a gentle, non-abrasive brass polish. Avoid using brushes, steel wool, polishing cloths, sponges and the like since the surface of brass is sensitive to objects that can scratch. Also avoid lengthy contact with oxides that can cause permanent damage. To avoid water damage, keep surfaces dry with a soft cloth.

  • Sustainability and manufacturing

    Material

    Brass

    We have always and will always strive to protect Swedish craftsmanship when we manufacture our products, but when there are no skilled craftspeople in Sweden, our production goes where craftsmanship is available. Therefore, some of our brass products are manufactured in India. Both of our Indian suppliers are subject to Svenskt Tenn’s code of conduct, which covers social issues such as safety and the environment. Svenskt Tenn staff visits regularly to ensure that the code of conduct is adhered to. The bulk of the copper used in our Indian suppliers’ brass is recycled.

    Sustainability in focus
