Trimmed, free standing besom. Early American Floor Broom - Pre 1850 design - Trimmed Version. Enjoy sweeping the old-fashioned way, or just enjoy this brooms beauty, as it hangs on the wall.

The broom is approximately 57" long. The sweep is very thick and full, approximately 6" in diameter. Bound tightly with tinned wire. 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
