Brooms

Brooms have been around in some form from the beginning of time. They have been made from what ever material people had to work with. My brooms are made from broomcorn, a member of the sorghum family. IT was first introduced to the United States by Ben Franklin in the 1700’s. The Shaker’s, well known for the inventions, introduced the flat broom as we know it today. I use the same techniques used by the Shakers and the Appalachians, but with a modern twist. I add more color.
