Shaker Authentic 1878 - Shaker Style Corn Brooms made on our antique broom winder and press. This is our lightweight kitchen size broom. Extra full and thick broomcorn sweep, but not too heavy. The broom features a genuine American birch handle, smooth and comfortable in the hands.
Our Shaker Authentic was recently featured in Architectural Digest 2022!
In stock and ready to ship.
Made true to the era, our Authentic 1878 Shaker Kitchen Broom is a scaled down version of our popular 1878 porch and floor broom. These brooms are meticulously hand-crafted the old way, using antique equipment from the late 19th century. We are proud to offer these durable brooms, and to carry on this tradition right here in our shop.
These brooms are made from 1 lb. of North American broom corn. The furniture grade birch handles are also made in our shop. The durable sweep is stitched flat by hand with three rows of chocolate waxed linen twine, with a matching brown leather loop for hanging. Perfectly balanced in the hands -- functional and pleasing to the eye.
The overall length of the broom is 57". The sweep is 10" wide, with soft bristles, long, full, and flexible. Perfect for reaching the nooks and crannies in the kitchen -- a broom from yesterday, to last many years.
We have a strong passion for brooms - creating them, learning about them, and using them. Each broom we offer is built by hand using 1800's methods borrowed from the Shakers. In our small workshop in the Pacific Northwest, we weave them one at a time. Every broom is unique, and designed to last for many years. Our ambition is to offer brooms of the finest craftsmanship -- and give each one our personal guarantee of quality.
Our best wishes
Kevin & Sarah
