Double sweeper broom entirely handmade in the old Appalachian mountain style by second generation broommakers, Marlow and Diana Gates. The handles are chosen with care, using only trees or saplings condemned by progress or ready for beneficial pruning. The sweep, made from the tassel of the broom corn plant, is securely tied and spread to give maximum use and years of enjoyment.
