Product description

With Berea’s Seventh Great Commitment to supportive and sustainable living in mind, this broom takes another step in the direction of thoughtful, elevated making. Crafted entirely by hand, the handles for this broom were harvested from the Berea College Forest by staff and students, and include maple, sassafras and beech. The handles are left to dry before winding brooms with broomcorn naturally dyed with black walnuts from campus and heartwood shavings from an Osage Orange tree within the College Forest. The stalks used to braid the base of the handle were also naturally dyed. The broom is then hand stitched using natural, sustainable hemp chord.

Handmade and natural materials yield a wide range of results, so expect there to be some variation in handle shape and broomcorn color.
