These beautiful brooms and besoms are handcrafted and made with 100% organic materials. Attention to detail is paid every step of the way, from harvesting the raw materials to the finished piece. Before the arrival of the commercial broom company, with a very practical flat (Shaker) broom, brooms were sown round and usually left untrimmed, as it required no special equipment to do this. Local craftsmen might make an annual batch of besoms, made of the local materials, which were indigenous to the area and sell or trade them in the local village. This is the “old world” style of broom. NOTE: Brooms are not able to be shipped out of the USA due to customs agriculture restrictions.
