Rainbow Besom – Large
Crafted of Natural Wood Handle & Multi Colored Broomcorn
Up your Quidditch game, or just enjoy the lovely lines of our most aerodynamic broom. This hand-crafted broom has smooth, thinner lines than our others and cuts a dashing picture wherever you put it. The multi-toned broomcorn is colored with non-toxic, stable dyes which, under normal circumstances, will not run. This is perfect for a simple altar and brings a strength and elegance to your ritual.
A broom winder, from an original machine from 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 53 inches. Your broom is made with natural wood branches, and crafted individually so will vary slightly from photo.
Traditionally brooms and besoms have been used for:
- Sweeping evil and negativity from your path
- Preparing your space for ritual
- Handfasting/Wedding Gift
- House Warming Gift
- Protection from Bad Luck
- "Jump the Broom" for wedding/hand fasting
Please note: If you would like a broom for Halloween/Samhain or a Yule gift, plan ahead - the Autumn months and Yule season are our busiest time for brooms and besoms. Warning: Prolonged exposure to sunlight may fade some broomcorns.
