Shaker Braid Broom
Synthetic brooms may cost a bit less but the beauty and craft of this Shaker-style broom leaves them in the dust. Created by the students at Berea College in Kentucky, each broom is made from hand rolled and braided natural straw, with a hardwood handle to provide years of use. Berea College was founded in 1855 as the first coeducational and interracial institution in the South. Berea charges no tuition--the sale of student-made crafts provides scholarships for Berea students and keeps Appalachian craft traditions vibrant and relevant.
