Sorghum & Leather Brooms are both functional and decorative. Each broom is handmade one at a time with basic tools.
SNOW MELT is a limited series of 3 brooms for transition / transformation work. I collected clean snow, let it melt at room temperature, poured through a coffee filter to ass movement + air, and soaked the fibers.
This series benefits ACLU Colorado!
This turkey wing hand broom is made with natural broomcorn. The cord is mountain sage, a silvery blue green. Please note that the color in the photos shows the brooms STILL WET. Dried will be lighter in color. The handle is solid weave pattern and provides grip. The hang tag is reclaimed leather. The broom is roughly 16 inches long not including the hangtag.
PLEASE NOTE: Natural materials do change color over time, esp. if exposed to sunlight.
Materials: natural broomcorn, snow melt, nylon cording, reclaimed leather.
- All leather is reclaimed and otherwise would have ended up in a landfill.
- Ships to the continental US only. You'll receive a tracking number. Sorghum & Leather is unable to ship outside the continental US.
For every broom made, a donation will be made to plant a native Colorado tree.

⁂ ⁂ ⁂ 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.
