Walnut Dustpan and Whisk Broom
This handmade walnut whisk broom and dustpan set elevates the everyday task of cleaning to a new level. Walnut is a sturdy dark hardwood, with grain that varies from piece to piece. Each broom is wrapped with broom corn, a material farmed traditionally and exclusively for broom production. The handles are finished with a natural beeswax/linseed oil blend that protects and highlights their complex tones. The octagonal handle brings ergonomics craft and intention to a quotidian tool.
These brooms are designed with both beauty and functionality in mind, because we should all be able to value the small moments in life. The whisk is approx. 12 inches, complete with leather ties for hanging and storage.
Not only will it help you tidy up, but you can put this broom and dustpan set on display before your guests arrive.
