Kick n' Stitch Broom Styles

Pictured below are products offered by Kick n' Stitch Brooms. Even though custom and personalized orders are not taken, some variations are available while remaining within the parameters of the established product style and design. Displaying all variations would prove impractical. Every broom is made with three things in mind; utility, aesthetics, and longevity. They are made to be used, crafted to offer a tasteful appearance, and constructed to last with proper use and care. Using pre-electric "body powered" equipment, though rewarding, the process is lengthy and physically intensive. It requires, but also allows for, utmost attention to the smallest of details resulting in the certainty of a soundly made product; a product that is intended to give full customer satisfaction and completely backed by the broom maker.

House Brooms
House brooms are soft-sweeping brooms and come in standard and kitchen size. They are offered with a choice of two top binding finishes, a double leather flax twine weave or single leather. With either, the flat shape is maintained using a leather band stitched together with hemp twine. The handles are 3/4 inch diameter oak with a bees wax/wood stain mixture polished finish. Handle lengths, hence the overall broom length, are sized per customer request. Please inquire.
