Using natural wood handles and broomcorn, we make each broom by hand with techniques that date to the 1790s Diana prepares the handles by shaping, carving and sanding each one by hand. Marlow then ties the heads on the handles in an intricate hand-woven Shaker design. We both share in the design, sewing and finishing of each broom.
