Sorghum & Leather Brooms are both functional and decorative. Each broom is handmade one at a time with basic tools.
This stitched hearth broom is made with dyed broomcorn. The actual color of the broomcorn is a little hard to pair down... black at first glance, dark purple/blue in certain light. The sweep is extra long and dramatic.
- Black broomcorn brooms are not food or water safe. This particular black broomcorn was not dyed in house and is not a natural dye.
The handle however is sustainably harvested, dried, and naturally dyed in house. The cording and stiching is bright red and gold colors. The hang tag is reclaimed brown leather.
The broomcorn is a natural dried plant and will age over time, but otherwise will withstand normal use or on display. Please keep dry and out of direct sunlight for best longevity.
Materials: synthetic dyed broomcorn, nylon cording, reclaimed leather, naturally stained broomstick

⁂ ⁂ ⁂ Care for your broom: Handmade brooms will last for a long time if cared for. It is suggested that brooms be hung to keep weight off of the natural fibers. If your broom starts to look splayed at the sweeping ends of the broomcorn, soak the end (not handle) in water for 20 minutes, shake off excess water and reshape. If needed, tie with twine or rubber band overnight. Be sure to dry very thoroughly and avoid using the broom until fully dry. The color of broomcorn will change over the life of the broom, especially if stored in sunlight or outdoors, or from the oil on our hands. Do not use near open flame.
