Broom making is a craft that dates back to ancient times. People would tie grass and twigs onto a stick, or just use a tree branch as a primitive broom to keep their surroundings tidy. In the 1800's the Shakers developed a vise that allowed them to craft a broom that was pressed flat. This created a much more efficient sweeping brush. We use the same techniques that were developed over 200 years ago to craft these brooms for your home and hearth.
