The kitchen broom has a wide sweep sewn flat (approximately 16 inches). It sweeps clean a large open area with ease. A kitchen broom’s sweep has two layers of broom corn with shoulders to help form the flat shape.
Wooden handles are made from several different species of hardwoods. Each handle is unique. I search our wooded areas, fence lines, and creek banks for small weed trees, dead-fall or drift wood that is rich in character.
Strong nylon twine is used to plait the 100% natural broom corn onto the handle. The length of plaiting on each broom varies due to the nature of the broom corn.
Natural fibered twine is used to sew the sweep. I use cotton and waxed linen twine to sew the sweep. Each broom is sewn 3 times to firmly hold the flat, Shaker style shape of the sweep.
Length – 48 – 58 inches. .
Truly each one is unique.
