Dual beater
Dual beater

Heavy weight of cleaner makes user to struggle during its use. By suction power, cleaning gets even harder. Also, current usage does not suit for pillows, clothing, nor toys. Hand beetling is a Korean tradition that generally used in the past for stretching and polishing a cloth. We thought we could apply the shape and value of hand beetling to bedding cleaner.

From a modern viewpoint, ‘Dual Beater’reinterpret manner of a hand beetling Inspired by flowing line of a Korean traditional jacket called Hanbok.

Through pounding, dust will float in the air by itself. At the same time‘Dual Beater’ will inhale it and sterilize fabric.
