Sorghum & Leather Brooms are both functional and decorative. Each broom is handmade one at a time with basic tools.
This stitched hand whisk broom is made with natural broomcorn. The handle has Bright Red and Brown cording. The extra long hang tag is reclaimed leather. The stitching is bright red, and is a little fancier than traditional stitching with an extra thick middle row and deep red broomcorn seeds stitched in. The broomcorn is a natural dried plant and will age over time, but otherwise will withstand normal use or on display. The seeds are somewhat delicate.
ABout 15" long.
Materials: natural broomcorn, 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.
Stitched Hand Whisk - Red and Brown with Red Stitching and Seeds
⁂ ⁂ ⁂ 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.
