With Berea’s Seventh Great Commitment to supportive and sustainable living in mind, this broom takes another step in the direction of thoughtful, elevated making. Crafted entirely by hand, the handles for this broom are made from native but invasive Red Maple, which has been harvested from the Berea College Forest by Student Craft staff and students. The handles are left to dry before winding brooms with broomcorn naturally dyed with black walnuts from campus and heartwood shavings from an Osage Orange tree within the College Forest. The stalks used to braid the base of the handle are also naturally dyed. The broom is then hand stitched using natural, sustainable hemp chord.
Handmade and natural materials yield a wide range of results, so expect there to be some variation in handle shape and broomcorn color.
