Kids Broom - Brown Mixed
This is the small version of our house brooms. We hand dyed the broom corn fiber black for this broom. These brooms are perfect first brooms for kids. This small broom is also great for sweeping spaces with low overhead space like in your tent or attic. We make each broom by hand using traditional techniques and primitive broom making equipment. We use natural high quality broom corn fiber to craft each brush. Each handle is made from a hardwood that we harvest in the backwoods of the Pacific Northwest. After we have harvested all the right broom sticks, We kiln dry them here at our shop to preserve the natural wood exterior. With proper care these brooms will last many, many years.

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.
