Brooms. Art. Love.
Backwoods Brooms is a small broom shop in Eugene Oregon. With over 25 years of experience, our handmade brooms are among the highest quality available today. Ranging in styles from traditional Shaker style kitchen and hearth brooms to beautiful multi-color whisk brooms and besoms. Each handmade broom is crafted using traditional broom making tools and materials. All of our products are made using high quality broom corn that we hand dye into bright vibrant colors to create wonderful functional art pieces. At Backwoods Brooms, we custom make each broom to order. The broom making process is tedious and can take about two weeks to complete depending on the current workload.
