To remove dust and memories after checkpoint crossings.
Travelling from the West Bank to Jerusalem, or vice versa, is never an easy journey. You won’t succeed in doing it just by public transportation. There is always a certain distance where you have to walk until you reach the checkpoint and stand in line to pass to the other side. That is where you will end up, with dusty shoes.
This checkpoint brush will not only help you remove the dust and let your shoes shine again, but also brush away the memory of the journey. Metaphorically, it can also be a catalyst for your imagination, erasing the checkpoints from the landscape.
