The Witches' Swift Sweep Besom
Handmade with Natural Wood & Broomcorn
Handmade just for you, this lovely witch's broom is perfect for your home or sacred space. Sustainably harvested Oregon wood is gathered and then expertly crafted into is high-quality broom. Created both to be displayed and used, it is well-balance to hold and easy to hang when not in use.
A broom winder, from an original machine in the 1800s is used to apply the broomcorn to the stick. Then a post Civil War era boom vice sews the broomcorn. From the vice, the brooms go to the "Kick Winder" where plaiting the broom stalks is done. Once the broom is finished, it goes to the "cropper", another 1800s tool, to be trimmed to the desired shape, whether rounded, straight, or angled. Your unique broom will be approximately 36 to 42 inches (91 to 106 cm). Your broom is made with natural wood branches, and crafted individually so will vary slightly from photo.
