This multifunctional design combines the packaging and a holder for a set of brushes. The 2-in-1 combination is based on a sophisticated folding technique and is made of recyclable, corrugated cardboard, which offers several advantages. On the one hand, it is eco-friendlier than plastic packaging, which is not usually used as a holder either. On the other hand, cardboard is cheaper and has a significantly lower weight than commonly used brush holders made of wood. The utensils are safely embedded in the combi-product, which is decorated with six differently coloured brushstrokes, but can also be removed easily.
