Handmade in Italy, the Spruzzo Straw Whisk Broom is made by one of Italy’s last broom artisans, in the Veneto region. Use this flexible and durable hand broom, which is fitted with a short beech wood handle, for deep cleaning all around your home.
Both the Veneto and Piedmont regions were famed for their production of handmade brooms, up until the 1950s. In these areas, farmers used straw (sorghum) as chicken feed. The rest of the plant, dried and cleaned, was used to make brooms. Every year at summer’s end, the farmers divided the bundles of straw into two-inch bundles before hanging them to dry. During the long days at home in the winter, they crafted brooms in their spare time.
