Made true to the era, our Authentic 1878 Shaker Corn Broom is as historically accurate as you can come to the original Shaker flat-sewn design. These handmade 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 100% North American broom corn. Genuine American hardwood handle. The durable sweep is stitched flat by hand with three rows of waxed linen twine, Perfectly balanced in the hands -- functional and pleasing to the eye.
The overall length of the broom is 57". The sweep is 11" wide, with soft bristles, long, full, and flexible. Perfect for wood floors or porch -- 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

I didn’t realize how terrible my plastic modern brooms were until I held this for the first time. It is beautiful, and clearly made with love and attention to detail. It is also highly functional, sweeping my floors with ease. I have five animals, so lots of fur, and the fur used to stick to the plastic bristles of my old brooms. Not this one! It is both much prettier and works better than any broom I’ve ever had. Definitely recommend!
