Henson Handmade Brooms

All our brooms are made by hand. We use no automated equipment. Either old traditional broom making equipment or in our lap entirely by hand. Our handles are milled hardwood that we get from our supplier or handles we cut in fence rows, ditches and gullies in the winter time. All our brooms are made with 100% broom corn. We use natural broom corn that has been dyed Black or Brown.
